Fatam Alsharif Saada*, Salma M. M. Attafa, Khaled A. Abdelshafeek and Mohammed Abdelkareem

ABSTRACT

Arum cyreniacum is an endemic Libyan plant growing in Aljabal Al-Akhder region.Though Arum species have been used since antiquity in herbal medicine for a wide array of human disorders, information on the medicinally important Arum cyreniacum is very scarce. Hence this study was carried out to investigate the volatiles of this herb and to assess the whole plant as a heavy metal remover in artificial water.The unsaponifiable fraction and the fatty acid methyl esters were analyzed by GLC which revealed the presence of palmitic and linolenic acids as major components. The study of herb powder as an adsorbent for removal of chromium (II) and cadmium (II) from water samples proved that, the optimal conditions are : pH=4-6; shaking time10 min. The limit of detection (3?) was found to be 0.10, 0.12 and 0.19 ?g /L and preconcentration factor of 100 has been achieved for such elements.
