Abstract (300 words maximum)

Fabric and thread are the precursors to microplastic fibers found in the environment. Fabric and thread oxidized by persulfate or soaked in a salt solution have been found to adsorb lead ions from water. Lead can be measured in water using an ICP-OES and thus differences are obtained when lead is adsorbed onto the fabric or thread. The different results will be described with respect to the concentration of persulfate and the salt solutions.
