Abstract The potential of Pomelo peel for adsorption of Methylene Blue from aqueous solution has been studied. Batch adsorption studies were carried out under varying experimental conditions of contact time dye concentration adsorbent dose and pH. The adsorption of methylene blue was maximum at pH 5.0. The adsorption studies show that the removal percentage of methylene blue corresponds to 95 with a retention time of 90 minutes. The optimum adsorbent dose was 1g150ml for initial dye-concentration of 100 ppm. The Langmuir adsorption model was used for the mathematical description of adsorption equilibrium and it was found that the experimental data fitted very well to the Langmuir model.
