    • Abstract


      Novel combustion synthetic route for the synthesis of nanosized SnO2 is reported. X-ray, tap and powder densities of SnO2 are calculated. Adsorption of Pb2+ ions on combustion derived nanosized SnO2 is studied. The as synthesized SnO2 and lead ions adsorbed SnO2 are characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron micrograph (SEM), and infrared spectroscopic (IR) techniques. The eluent is characterized by atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) and solution conductivity (SC) to know the reduction in the concentration and increase in conductance of lead solution after adsorption on the SnO2 surface. The potential use of solid adsorbents for the adsorption of heavy metal pollutants is envisaged in the present work.
