In this study, the removal of zinc ions In (II)j from agUeous solutions by using agricultural by-product of co conut coir fir activated carton preparation was investigated. *1 he effects of initial solution pi I, initial metal ion concentration and amount of adsorbent on the adsorption process were also examined. The diflcrcnt kinetic modeling analysis of the I . lovich, pseudo-first order, pseudo-second order, intraparticlc diffusion, mass transfer and intraparticic diffusivity equations will he used to analy,. c the kinetic data for to (II) ion adsorption. The kinetic parameters including rate constant are determined at different initial metal ion conccnirntion, piI and the amount of adsorbent. The I-angmuir and Freundlich adsorption isotherm models are used to describe the experimental data and I. angmuir model showed a better correlation cocflicicnt. The coconut coir was found to be a metal adsorbent as cflcctive as activated carbon.
