Abstract

A kinetic investigation was performed with an ion exchange resin for chromium. A chelating cation exchange resin ( Amberlite IRC 718) was used for removal and recovery of chromium. The effect of concentration, resin amount, particle size and stirring speed on kinetics were investigated. The metal concentration range studied was between 5 to 160 mg L-1, the resin amount range was between 5 to 20 mg, the particle size range was between 0.35 to 1.8 mm and the stirring speed range was between 1000 to 3500 rpm.
