This study involves the determination of the adsorption capacity of activated kaolin for the removal of ciprofloxacin hydrochloride from aqueous medium. The kaolin was activated through chemical (HCl and HNO3) activation method, the adsorbent was characterize using Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), the adsorption experiment was monitored using Ultra-violet visible spectrophotometer at maximum wavelength of 438 nm. The effect of concentration, pH, contact time and adsorbent dose were examined.
