Bioadsorption of Co(II) metal ions from the aqueous medium using Trapa natan peels biomass was examined for preliminary pH, initial metal absorption and contact time. Pretreatment of biomass were carried out with oxidizing agents. The maximum uptake q (mgg-1) for Co(II) obtained by KMnO4 -TNP was about (53.92) as compared to Native- TNP (24.28) at pH 5. The equilibrium and kinetics models were applied over data. The Langmuir and Freundlich equilibrium adsorption models were investigated and observed to the fit the data. The Freundlich model gave better fit than the Langmuir model with R2 value of 0.9951. Kinetic study revealed that adsorption was fast in first 60 minutes and equilibrium was achieved after 120 minutes for Co(II) metal. The suitability of a pseudo second order chemical reaction for the sorption of Co(II) onto this biosorbent was apparent. The results revealed that Trapa natans peels biomass is effective, potential and best beneficial biosorbent for removal of heavy metals.
