      Abstract: Development of newer adsorbent   materials, especially from biomass, is most crucial to sustain   growth of otherwise well established adsorption processes that   already have hundreds of commercial adsorbents in practice. In   the present study, newer adsorbents and their   potential-carbonaceous adsorbents derived from the whole fruit of   Cassia fistula (Golden shower) have been reported for   applications in environmental pollution control using natural,   renewable biomass as precursor. The potential of different forms   of the derived adsorbents produced by thermal and chemical   activation was examined for two representative cases,   desulfurization of transportation fuels and wastewater treatment.   The adsorbents were characterized by FTIR, XRD, XPS, and SEM   techniques that indicate specific characteristics useful as an   adsorbent. A successful application in the real industrial   wastewater treatment and comparison with well recognized   commercial adsorbents clearly highlights the utility of the   developed newer adsorbents in separation science and   technology.\nDevelopment of newer adsorbent materials, especially   from biomass, is most crucial to sustain growth of otherwise well   established adsorption processes that already have hundreds of   commercial adsorbents in practice.
