Abstract: Arsenic is a commonly occurring toxic metal in natural systems and the root cause of many diseases and disorders. In India arsenic is found in ground water primarily in West Bengal. In the present work adsorption studies of As(V) have also been carried out on alumina. During adsorption the effect of various parameters such as contact time, initial concentration, pH and adsorbent dose has been studied. Kinetics of adsorption showed that the uptake of arsenic is very rapid during first thirty minutes and equilibrium time is independent of initial arsenic concentration. The standard adsorption isotherms were fitted to the data.
