Abstract (PDF)
Graphical Abstract: This study examines the potential use of a low-cost biosorbent - chamomile tea residues, as an alternative to traditional adsorbents for removing Pb2+ ions from aqueous solutions. The results show that lead concentration is reduced under optimized conditions, achieving an impressive nearly 50% Pb2+ ions removal with a mere just 0.05 g of the waste material, depicting chamomile tea residues as efficient biosorbent in lead removal.
