4DescriptionAbstract The capacity of hydrochloric acid treated pistachios seed shell carbon (PSSC) for the removal of cadmium from aqueous solution was examined. The effect of various experimental parameters such as equilibration time, pH, carbon dosage, temperature, agitation speed, particle size was studied using batch process. The experiment demonstrated showed that the equilibrium adsorption data fit the Freundlich adsorption isotherm. The adsorbents used in this study are characterized by FT-IR, XRD before and after adsorption of cadmium ion. Desorption study was carried out using HCl solution with a view to regenerate the spent adsorbent and to recover the adsorbed metal ion. The result obtained clearly indicates that PSSC is a very good adsorbent than commercially activated carbon (CAC) and it can be used for the removal of heavy metals from synthetic water.
