Abstract:The porous hierarchical MgO with superb adsorption properties has been synthesized by a facile and scaled-up method. The X-ray powder diffraction, electron microscopy, Fourier transformed infrared, and N-2 adsorption-desorption were carried out to study the microstructure of the as-synthesized precursor and product. It has been demonstrated that the as-prepared MgO has a porous hierarchical structure and a high specific surface area (148 m(2) g(-1)). And the MgO sample exhibited super adsorption properties, with maximum adsorption capacity of 2409 mg g(-1) for Congo red, which is the highest reported value. Moreover, the adsorption process of Congo red on porous hierarchical MgO was systematically investigated, which was found to obey the pseudo-second-order rate equation and Langmuir adsorption model.
