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 outcomes exhibited that the prepared nanohydrogel had high adsorption tendency to remove the CB from the aqueous solution. The regression coefficient values for Langmuir (0.99), Frendluich (0.93) and Tempkin (0.98) recommended that adsorption process fit to langmuir isotherm. The pseudo-second-order equation showed the better adsorption kinetics of the adsorption process. The feasibility of CB adsorption onto ST/PL(AA-cl-AAm) NHG was also studied thermodynamically and the results indicated that the adsorption was spontaneous and chemical in nature.
