${session.getAttribute("locale")} 5 Surface studies of a biomaterial for the development of a biosensor for the detection of trace metals. 5.5, and these amount to Zeta potential of 0 to ±5mV. High-resolution scanning electron microscopy (HRSEM) reveals a microstructure showing predominantly flattish rod like particles. Energy dispersive xray (EDX) shows high percentage levels of Al, Mg and Si with potential to form organometallic compounds. The presence of amino groups would form a linkage entry of the enzyme into MT.cellulosic surface hydroxyl groups. Maize tassel (MT) has shown its potential to adsorb trace metals from aqueous solution [2-4]. But before MT can be put into use in biosensor development, its characteristics properties such as morphology, dispersion and adsorption trends need to be known. In the current study, we present the aforementioned properties of MT. It is anticipated that these factors would enhance the integration and coordinated participation of the enzyme during catalysis.]]> Wed 24 Mar 2021 14:19:25 SAST ]]> Application of maize tassel for the removal of Pb, Se, Sr, U and V from borehole water contaminated with mine wastewater in the presence of alkaline metals.
