Supplementary Material

The plots of adsorption isotherms (Figure S1), kinetics (Figure S2), 3D Response surface plots (Figures S3-S6) and predicted versus actual responses (Figure S7) are illustrated in Figures S1-S7; and the percentage chemical composition of zirconium-doped fungal biomass using EDS analysis (Table S1) and ANOVA tables for the response of percentage fluoride removal (Tables S2-S5), for four zirconium-doped fungal biomass are provided in Tables S1-S5.
