In this study the uptake of Amoxicillin(AMX) at different parameters such as (initial concentration of amoxicillin (50-350ppm), contact time and different dosage of activated carbon (0.5-1gm).Batch adsorption study was adopted to calculate the experimental adsorption isotherm information for several initial concentrations of AMX (50 – 350 mg/l). The equilibrium information were analyzed using Langmuir, Freundlich and Brunauer–Emmett–Teller (BET) models. The results displayed that the experimental data were good fitted with Freundlich isotherm. Pseudo- first order, pseudo- second order, as well as intraparticle diffusion models were utilized to analyze experimental kinetics data with high correlation coefficient for pseudo- first – order model.
