Introduction: water source pollutant, result of direct releasing of metal ions to environment, is one of the most important problems in the world. In this study, efficiency of synthesized iron oxide nanoparticles in presence of extract tangerine Peel was investigated for removal of copper ions in the solution.

Methods: Iron oxide nanoparticles were prepared by co-perception method using Tangerine Peel extract. The Tangerine Peel extract used to decrease of nanoparticle size and to prevent of particles coagulation. The effect of different parameter includes initial copper concentration, adsorbent dose, contact time and solution pH was investigated on removal of copper. The experimental data were fitted to Langmuir and Freundlich isotherm models.

Results: The results showed that the removal efficiency was increased by increasing of pH and decreased from 88% to 81% by increasing of initial copper concentration from 5 mg/l to 10 mg/l. The most removal percent was 92% when copper concentration was 5 mg/l and adsorbent doze was 0.6 g in 100 ml suspension.

Conclusion: The results showed the removal efficiency is depended on to pH. The increase of copper concentration decreased the removal efficiency. Adsorption experimental data were in good accordance with Langmuir isotherm model. The synthesized iron oxide nanoparticles with extract Tangerine Peel is a good adsorbent for removing of heavy metals from aqueous solution.
