AbstractThe realization that the observed kinetic coefficient (k(obs)) varies with time in most real-time adsorption system, as against the constant value conceived in the most widely-applied adsorption kinetic models, have attracted much attention in recent time. Understanding the factors that control the extent/degree of time dependency (otherwise known as fractal-like kinetics), is therefore central in taking manipulative advantage of this phenomenon in critical adsorption applications. This study therefore deployed nonfractal-like and fractal-like kinetic approach to study the adsorption of tetracycline on monodispersed starch-stabilized magnetite nanocomposite (MSM). MSM was synthesized by in-situ coprecipitation of magnetite in the presence of starch, and successfully characterized with classical solid-state techniques. Isotherm studies indicated that MSM has heterogenous surface adsorption sites. Equilibrium and kinetic data indicated the existence of pi-cation interaction as the underlying mechanism, while pH study revealed that tetracycline was adsorbed in its zwitterion form. Though the non-fractal kinetic models exhibited some level of relevance in explaining the tetracycline adsorption interactions, the best fitting of the fractal-like pseudo second order model to the adsorption kinetic data, indicated that the real-time adsorption kinetics occurred in fractal-like manner. The study also revealed that the degree of time dependency of k(obs) had negative correlation with the initial tetracycline concentration. Apart from developing a low-cost strategy for addressing tetracycline water pollution, the result of this study serves a positive step towards gaining manipulative control of adsorption mechanism in potential application of MSM for targeted drug delivery and controlled release of tetracycline antibiotics.
