In order to show how is the Cr(III) distribution between the liquid phase and the solid phase at the equilibrium, biosorption isotherms were obtained at four different temperatures (20, 30, 40, 60 degrees C). The isotherm models of Langmuir, Freundlich and Dubinin-Radushkevich were used to test the equilibrium biosorption data. Better fittings were obtained for both Langmuir and Dubinin-Radushkevich models. Additionally, the thermodynamic parameters enthalpy change, entropy change, and Gibbs free energy change were calculated and the biosorption process was found to be exothermic and spontaneous. The results shown that sericin-alginate particles are a promising biosorbent material for the efficient removal of Cr(III).52169174CAPESCNPq [470615/2013-3]FAPESP [2011/51824-8, 2015/13505-9]Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior (CAPES)Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico (CNPq)Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo (FAPESP)19th International Conference on Process Integration, Modeling and Optimization for Energy Savings and Pollution Reduction (PRES)Aug 27-31, 2016Prague, Czech Republic
