To study themalachite green(MG) removal from aqueous solution, iron oxide was prepared from iron(III) nitrate nonahydrate (Fe(NO3)3, 9H2O) and ammonium hydroxide (NH4OH). The Fe2O3characterizationwas examined by X-ray diffraction spectroscopy (XRD), Brunauer Emmett- Teller (BET) specific surface area measurements and Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy. The data of malachite green Kinetics adsorptions, show that the adsorption followed pseudo-second order kinetics. For concentrations below 6.10-4 mol/l, MG solution was almost completely decolorized after 45 min. The elimination percentage reached 86.13 for the concentration 6.10-4 mol/l and 25 mg of the Hematite. The experimental isotherms were analyzed with Langmuir, Freundlich and Redlich-Peterson using non-linear regression. The results showed that the Freundlich isotherms best-fit the equilibrium data. The thermodynamic study has shown that MG adsorption on Hematite is endothermic (ΔH°>0); it increases with temperature. The negative ΔG° values showed that the MG adsorption process on the Hematite is spontaneous. However, the positive value of ΔS° indicates the increase in Hematite-solution interface disorder at the time of MG fixation. © 2019 Elsevier Ltd.
