    Abstract: The release of potentially toxic elements either by anthropogenic or industrial activities has deteriorated water quality rendering water bodies unsuitable. It was on this basis that readily available agricultural waste was used to treat simulated wastewater containing the potentially toxic element (Ni and Co). Adsorption studies of Co and Ni from ...
