Effect of pH on the uptake of arsenate and vanadate and the stability of these anions in alkaline solutions – a Raman spectroscopic study
Palmer, Sara J. & Frost, Ray L. (2011) Effect of pH on the uptake of arsenate and vanadate and the stability of these anions in alkaline solutions – a Raman spectroscopic study. Journal of Raman Spectroscopy, 42(2), pp. 224-229.
Hydrotalcites have been synthesised using three different pH solutions to assess the effect of pH on the uptake of arsenate and vanadate. The ability of these hydrotalcites to remove vanadate and arsenate from solution has been determined by ICP-OES. Raman spectroscopy is used to monitor changes in the anionic species for hydrotalcites synthesised at different pH values. The results show a reduction in the concentration of arsenate and vanadate anions that are removed in extremely alkaline solutions. Hydrotalcites containing arsenate and vanadate are stable in solutions up to pH 10. Exposure of these hydrotalcites to higher pH values results in the removal of large percentages of arsenate and vanadate from the hydrotalcite interlayer.
