Abstract
In this work, activated clay from Algeria was used as adsorbent for the removal of methyl orange (MO) from aqueous solution, for this, the effects of several parameters such as contact time, adsorbent dose, pH value of aqueous solution and temperature on the adsorption of MO were also studied. The results showed that nearly 30 min of contact time are found to be sufficient for the adsorption to reach equilibrium and the adsorption was favourable at lower pH. The acid dye concentration is measured with UV-visible spectrophotometer at a wavelength of 464 nm. The adsorption capacity of MO found to be 32.57 mg/g. The Pseudo-first-order and pseudo-second-order models...
