Efficient In Vitro Paraquat Removal via Irreversible Immobilization into Zeolite Particles

Abstract

A new efficient mineral adsorbent, zeolite ZSM-5, has been evaluated for its ability to durably immobilize the herbicide paraquat in conditions simulating acute poisoning by oral ingestion of this toxic compound. The sorption properties have been studied in water, normal saline solution, as well as in artificial and simulated human gastric juices. Uptake kinetics and capacities have been determined and compared to the ion exchange resin Amberlite IR-120. Significant advantages of ZSM-5 over the resin have been demonstrated, especially with respect to long-term retention capability of the toxic herbicide. This solid is a promising primary treatment of acute paraquat poisoning.
