First would be the collection and preparation of coconut husks and spent ferric chloride solution. After that, simulation for etching will be done followed by the filtration of the copper ion content on the spent solution using the husks. Output samples will then be sent to a testing center which would test the remaining copper ion concentration on the processed samples.


The challenge I can identify with this experiment is looking for a testing center that can test and analyze my samples. For sure there will be some available testing centers, only that I still have to look for them.

Pre Analysis Plan

Once the samples had been tested, and results are sent back to me, the efficiency of the husk in removing copper ions will be calculated. Similarly adsorption capacity of the husks will also be determined.
