Abstract

Phenols are toxic organic compounds and which badly affects the flora and fauna of the
biosphere because phenols are persistent pollutant found in wastewater from many industries. In present
research article the photocatalytic removal of O-Nitro Phenol by synthesized Magnetic Nanoadsorbents
(MNA) carried out under photocatalytic reactor. The MNA were synthesized by Co-precipitation method
required short period of time. The photocatalytic reactor manually assembled in the laboratory. The U.V
irradiation found to be effective. The different parameters have been studied like initial concentration of ONitro
Phenol, temperature, contact time, adsorbent dose and pH.The effective removal of O-Nitro Phenol by
MNA at optimum pH 1.5 to 2.5. The employed MNA was characterized by SEM (Scanning Electron
microscopy), XRD (X-ray Diffraction) and FTIR (Fourier Transfer Infrared Spectroscopy). The Present
removal study well fitted for Friendlich and Langmuir adsorption isotherm. A kinetics and equilibrium studies
were also carried out by using MNA. In this experimental research the desorption study of MNA also shows
good results, reusability of MNA were possible.
