A novel iron doped chitosan coated activated alumna (IDCA) derivative was prepared and spectroscopic studies including FTIR, Elemental analysis (EA), XRD, and SEM were used for its characterization. Thermodynamic behavior of the adsorbent was evaluated by Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) and Differential Scanning calorimetry (DSC) analysis. The pore size distribution and nitrogen adsorption isotherm revealed the existence of micro porous structure. The applicability of the adsorbent towards the removal of arsenite and arsenate has been demonstrated. Copyright © 2010 VBRI press.
