    • Abstract

       

      The present study depicts the efficiency of cellulose acetate/manganese oxide thin films as adsorbents for selective extraction and detection of flavone in environmental waters. The selectivity of thin films (CA/Mn-1 and CA/Mn-2)was evaluated towards several organic compounds. Based on selectivity study results, CA/Mn-2 thin film was the most selective towards flavone among other compounds. In addition, the effect of other parameters such as contact time andinitial concentration of flavone was investigated to optimize adsorption conditions. The adsorption capacity of flavone was experimentally obtained as 57.96 mg g$^{−1}$ and theoretically calculated from Langmuir equation as 58.48 mg g$^{−1}$, which indicates the high agreement of the results. Moreover, data obtained from kinetic study suggested that the adsorption of flavone onto CA/Mn-1 phase followed a pseudo-second-order kinetic model. Finally, validation of this method has attained reasonable results for determination of flavone in real water samples.
