Abstract: In this study, we have synthesized a starch/poly(alginic acid-cl-acrylamide) nanohydrogel (ST/PL(AA-cl-AAm) NHG) by co-polymerization method which was used as an effective adsorbent for the removal of coomassie brilliant (CB) blue R-250 dye from the aqueous solution. The synthesized nanohydrogel was characterized by FTIR, SEM and TEM techniques. The effect of initial dye concentration, temperature, and agitation time on the adsorption ability of the nanohydrogel was studied comprehensively. The experimental ou…
