Abstract: The color of dye aqueous solution which cannot be removed by coagulation was selected to decolourize it through adsorption process by using novel adsorbents namely Flocs of Ferric Sulphate, Aluminium sulphate and Manganese sulphate. In order to know efficacy of adsorbents, batch sorption studies and equilibrium studies were conducted. Good color removal was achieved with Ferric sulphate at pH::4 and Manganese Sulphate at pH::10, which will be applicable to reduce the industrial dye effluent pollution. Equilibrium data applied to Langmuir Isotherm, was best fitted, stating monolayer formation and kinetic data applied to pseudo second order equation, was well fitted, stating that chemisorption is the rate limiting step.
Keywords: Adsorption, Kinetic Data, Equilibrium Data, Preformed Flocs, Isotherms and Chemisorption.
