|Abstract:||Sorption experiments using the dead biomass of <i style="">Spirogyra</i> species, for copper removal were carried out to study the influence and optimization of the biosorption of Cu (II). The effect of pH (1.0 - 10.0), initial metal ion concentration (1 - 100ppm), different contact periods (30 - 180 min), varying temperature (25 – 50 ºC) and varying biomass quantities (0.5,1.0,1.5 and 2.0 g) were also examined. It was observed that <i style="">Spirogyra </i>species possessed better specific uptake capacities for Cu (II), showing approximate uptake of 34.94mg/g of biomass. <i style="">Spirogyra</i> species has shown much better sorption in the pH between 6.0 - 7.0 and at contact time of 30 min.|
