Abstract: Arsenic occurs naturally in rocks, water, soil, air, animals, and plants. Arsenic contamination in water especially groundwater has been recognized as a poison and cancer causing substance. The present study deals with the biosorption of As (V) from aqueous solution using tea waste (TW) in a batch operation. Fourier transmission infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), were used to analyze the characteristic of tea waste (TW) biomass. The experiment results showed that maximum removal of As (V) by tea waste is 77% respectively at optimum condition.
