  • Abstract

    Ceramic foams are synthesised by three technical replicates. The foams are characterised by SEM techniques, FTIR, nitrogen adsorption isotherms at 77 K and the Instron test. Subsequently, foams are used for the adsorption of Ni2+ and Cr3+ from aqueous solution. The results show that the foam EC-1 has the highest adsorption capacity for both ions at the working pH. The adsorption of the studied ions was adjusted by the Freundlich model.
