The effluents of wastewater in some industries such as, textiles, leather, paper and plastics contain various kinds of synthetic dyes. Molecular sieves like aluminosilicate or aluminophosphate materials containing tiny pores of precise and uniform size, which are used as adsorbents, catalyst carriers, desiccants, and so on. In this work, initial dye concentration, contact time, adsorbent dosage, pH and kinetic studies were carried out to evaluate the adsorption capacity ZnAPSO-34 nanoporous material for the removal of MB from aqueous solutions. The results showed that ZnAPSO-34 could be employed as an alternative for the removal of dyes and colors from aqueous solutions.
