Abstract

Palm tree male flower activated carbon (PTMFAC) was employed as adsorbent for removal of Acid blue-113 (AB) dye from aqueous solution. The interactive effect of five different experimentally controlled environmental factors viz. temperature, initial pH, AB dye concentration, agitation speed and adsorbent dose on removal efficiency was optimized using response surface methodology (RSM) combined with three-level, Five-variable, Box-Behnken design (BBD) to obtain the results. Statistical method was used to evaluate the adequacy of developed model. It was observed that there is consonance in results between values predicted by model (188.07 mg g-1 )and observed experimental values(188.077 mg g-1 ). The work indicated that water contaminated with AB dye can be effectively removed by using PTMFAC
