dc.description.abstractNickel ferrite nanocomposites (NFNCs) were prepared and utilized to remove hexavalent chromium from the effluent of the electroplating industry. The nickel ferrite nanoparticles (NFNPs) were synthesized by the sol-gel auto combustion process, and they were doped ultrasonically onto the surface-modified multi-walled carbon nanotubes (SM-MWCNTs). Characterization results confirmed that the NFNPs with a cubic spinel structure were successfully impregnated onto the SM-MWCNTs. The synthesized NFNCs were tubular structures with an outer diameter in the range of 30–40 nm and had high crystal defect. The NFNCs with the surface area of 210.5 m g offer high magnetic separability due to their paramagnetic behavior. Non-linear kinetic, thermodynamic, and isotherm models were used for interpretations, and high Cr(VI) uptake of 129.83 mg/g was obtained at 40 °C. The Cr(VI) uptake by NFNCs was dominated by electrostatic attractions at a low pH and ion exchange mechanism at a higher pH. Lastly, high efficient recyclability of the NFNCs and applicability in removing other heavy metals from electroplating effluent suggested them to be a promising material in wastewater treatment.-
