Abstract

The mycelium of Phomopsis helianthi (Ascomycete) was hydrolyzed with boiling NaOH to give an insoluble fraction composed of chitosan and glucans. The biomass obtained was tested as an agent for the removal of pesticides from an aqueous solution. Oxadixyl, which has a solubility in water of 3400 mg L−1, has been chosen as a hydrophilic organic contaminant model. The new, cheap material was demonstrated to recover up to 6 mg of oxadixyl per gram of adsorbent. The experimental data show an excellent correlation with the Langmuir isotherm model.
