Detail

Chitopalm is a biosorbent derived from the integration of chitosan and palm kernel fatty acid distillate (PKFAD). Chitosan is rich in amino and hydroxyl groups, while PKFAD in carboxyl groups, both of which have proven effective in metal binding. By taking advantage of the synergy between chitosan and PKFAD, Chitopalm shows a high sorption selectivity towards gold in the presence of other metals.
