Water pollution is a now a serious problem due to discharge from industrial waste, agricultural waste into water
sources. Various physicochemical and biological methods have been studied for metal ion removal. Amongst various
techniques adsorption is the easy and cheaper method for removal of heavy metal ions. In the present work adsorbent
prepared from waste material like peanut shells which are easily available used for the preparation of adsorbent. It
was observed that the adsorbent prepared from waste peanut shells can act as a good adsorbent.
