Currently, there is an increased interest in aluminosilicates of natural origin, both in connection with the use in detoxification of waters and soils, and as a matrix for the creation of biologically active composites. The morphological characteristics of glauconite grains from the Beloozersk deposit in the Saratov region and its composite have been studied by scanning electron microscopy. The main sorption characteristics of the enriched fraction of glauconite in relation to chlorhexidine bigluconate were determined by spectrophotometry. On the basis of the presented sorption isotherm, the mechanism of immobilization of chlorhexidine bigluconate on a glauconite matrix is analyzed in accordance with the provisions of Langmuir's theory. The basic constants of the Langmuir equation are determined. It was revealed that glauconite has a high sorption activity (up to 87%) in relation to chlorhexidine bigluconate, which can be in demand as filter media in wastewater treatment, in agriculture, as well as in medicine and veterinary medicine, to create new types of enterosorbents with antibacterial properties.
