Descriptive data on trichloroethylene and Congo red dye adsorption from wastewater using bio nanosponge phosphorylated-carbon nanotube/nanoparticles polyurethane composite.
The availability and quality of water resources is currently the primary concern in Southern Africa. The challenge is to improve or develop water treatment materials or methods to solve this problem of potable water scarcity. Hence, this article presents the analyzed data, which are supplementary data information on the study of bio nanosponge phosphorylated-carbon nanotube/nanoparticles polyurethane composite (pMWCNT/β-CD/TiO2-Ag) as polymeric nanobiosorbent, for water treatment. The developed polymeric nanobiosorbent (pMWCNT/β-CD/TiO2-Ag) was synthesized using combined methods of amidation reaction, cross polymerization, and sol-gel process. The removal of water pollutants (trichloroethylene (TCE) and Congo red (CR) dye) was conducted by the batch adsorption method. The conditions used during the adsorption experiments and methods (applied to quantify the water samples after adsorption studies) are described. Additional data obtained on the effect of pH, isotherm, kinetic, and thermodynamic studies are also illustrated
