  author={Seyed Masoud Seyedi and Bagher Anvaripour and Mohsen Motavassel and Naghi Jadidi},
Chitosan and nanochitosan were used for the adsorption of cadmium from water. Nanochitosan was prepared from chitosan by using sodium tripolyphosphate. Cadmium removal was a pH dependent and the optimum adsorptions of chitosan and nanochitosan were found at pH solutions of 7.0 and 4.6 respectively. The maximum adsorption capacities for chitosan and nanochitosan adsorbents were 153 and 358 mg/g respectively. Experimental data were correlated better by the model of Langmuir than with Freundlich…
