Arsenic (As) contamination in drinking water is a serious environmental and health problem all over the India. Since biosorption is a less consuming, cheap and easy handling technique to remove As from ground water and waste water, so in present work biosorptive behaviour of Syzygium cumini seeds (SCS) biomass in a batch system has been investigated successfully to remove As (III) from ground water and waste water. Maximum percent removal of 69.30 % of As (III) was achieved at pH - 5, adsorbent…
