Graphical Abstract:
A nanocomposite of chitosan and poly acrylic acid grafting multi-walled carbon nanotubesp (CS-co-AA)/MWCNTs was applied as adsorbent for Ofloxacin adsorption from water solutions. The isotherm constant (KF) of 0.218 and the separation factor (R2) of 0.956 indicate a strong and desirable adsorption of OFL on p(CS-co-AA)/MWCNTs with a concentration of 100 mg/L at a temperature of 293K and an acidic medium with pH of 7.0.
