Among them, the methylene blue stands out, which lies as an extensively researched and studied dye in adsorption on solids, repeatedly presented as a model compound to be followed in adsorption studies of organic compounds from aqueous solutions (HAMEED; DIN; AHMAD, 2007; AVELAR et al., 2010; COUTO et al., 2012; BORGES et al., 2016).
Among their topics are the adsorptive removal of mercury from water and wastewater by chitosan and its derivatives, the effect of chitosan modification on its structure and specific surface area, applying chitin and chitosan-based adsorbents to remove natural dyes from wastewater, environmental applications for removing arsenicals, the role of surfactants in enhancing the biosorption capacity of chitosan, and graphene oxide-chitosan furnished monodisperse platinum nanoparticle as importantly competent and reusable nanosorbents for removing methylene blue.
