Abstract: A bioadsorbent composed of polycarboxylated sugarcane bagasse (PSB) was prepared in a one-step reaction by the esterification of sugarcane bagasse hydroxyl groups with butane-1,2,3,4-tetracarboxylic dianhydride. 13C SS NMR measurements showed that 0.3 butane-1,2,3,4-tetracarboxylic acid units were grafted per cellobiose unit. PSB was used in the batch adsorption of Cd(II) and Pb(II) from mono-, bi-, and multicomponent aqueous solutions. For upscaling of the technology aiming at practical applications, evaluation was made of 4 cycles of continuous adsorption of Cd(II) and Pb(II) on PSB in a fixed-bed column. The maximum adsorption capacities for Cd(II) and Pb(II) on PSB in batch and continuous modes were 0.55 and 1.164 mmol g− 1 (62 and 241.2 mg g− 1 ), and 0.58 and 0.71 mmol g− 1 (65 and 153 mg g− 1 ), respectively. The standard adsorption enthalpy change (ΔadsH◦) values for Cd(II) and Pb(II) were 8.6 ± 0.5 and − 0.28 ± 0.03 kJ mol− 1 , respectively. The interactions involved in the adsorption of Cd(II) and Pb(II) on PSB were investigated. Multicomponent studies showed that Pb (II) and Cd(II) acted to suppress the adsorption of each other. In the presence of Cu(II) and Zn(II), the adsorption capacity followed the order: Pb(II) > Cu(II) > Cd(II) > Zn(II). Batch and continuous adsorption-desorption studies showed that PSB could be reused in at least 4 successive cycles, with desorption efficiencies of 88–100 %, which is essential for minimizing waste generation and reducing process costs.
