Spectroscopic Investigation of Charge Transfer Complex And Adsorption of Nitrondye with Curcumin(1) Onmodified Attapulgiteclay
A charge transfer complex formed by interaction between nitron as electron donor with curcumin(1 ) as electron acceptor in ethanol at the temperature of theroom to form a colored complex. The optimum conditions of complex formation were investigated by Univariate method. The linearity range of complex was (3.124– 53.11) μg.mL-1 at 442 nm with molar absorptivity (1858.33) L.mol-1.cm-1, Sandell's sensitivity (0.1681μg.cm-2), and with a correlation coefficient (0.9935). Both modified attapulgite and modified attapulgite – complex have been characterized by using , FTIR, SEM, AFM, and XRD. Theadsorption behaviourof complex onto the modified attapulgite has been researchedthrough the variation of the parameters like the adsorbent weight, pH, contacttime , temperature and particle size . Adsorption isotherms of complex onto the modified attapulgitehave beenspecified and correlated with the typical equations of theisotherms. It has beendiscovered that the FreundlichandLangmuir model appear to be fitting the data of theisotherm.The general adsorption isotherm shape of complex on modified attapulgite is consistent with (S-type) on the Giles classification. Thermo-dynamic analysis indicated that the sorption of the complex on modified attapulgite clay was endothermic and spontaneous.
