Heavy metal ion pollution has become a serious problem. In this paper, a new type of adsorbent, reduced graphene oxide grafted by 4-sulfophenylazo groups (RGOS), was synthesized to adsorb heavy metal ions in an aqueous solution via two kinds of adsorption modes, ion exchange and coordination. The maximum adsorption capacities of the RGOS for Pb(II), Cu(II), Ni(II), Cd(II) and Cr(III) were 689, 59, 66, 267 and 191 mg/g, respectively. Adsorption equilibrium time of RGOS for...
