Abstract

This study was aimed at studying the research trends as well as the effect of chemical treatment on the adsorption capacity of sugarcane bagasse adsorbents in aqueous media. Drawing upon an expansive dataset spanning two decades and sourced from the Scopus database, it unveiled the temporal evolution of scholarly engagement, reflecting dynamic growth and shifting scholarly interests. With 1086 articles authored by 1060 co-authors hailing from 82 countries, the global influence of this research domain is strikingly evident. The intricate interplay between diverse chemical treatments and adsorption performance enhancement in aqueous solution was meticulously examined, encompassing acids, alkalis, oxidants, polymers, and surfactants. The mechanistic effects of these treatments emerged as a transformative strategy, often leading to significant improvements in adsorption performance, with enhancements even reaching up to 4000%. Nonetheless, isolated instances of reduced adsorption performance were also documented. This integrative analysis advances the understanding of sugarcane bagasse adsorbents as versatile and sustainable solutions poised to address complex environmental challenges.
