In this study, hydrous manganese dioxide (HMO) modified poly(sodium acrylate) (PSA) hydrogel was produced for the first time to remove tetracycline(TC) and lead(Pb(II)) from water. The as-prepared composite was characterized using various techniques, such as SEM-EDS, FTIR, XRD, BET, and XPS, to elucidate the successful loading of HMO and analyze subsequent sorption mechanisms. Different influencing parameters such as adsorbent dose, initial concentration of adsorbates, reaction time, solution pH, and temperature were also investigated. Read More
