Introduction: Carbon nano tubes are products which have the ability to remove some contaminants from aqueous solutions and wastewater. The efficiency of these products depends on different factors such as PH, concentration, contact, mixing time, etc. in this research the efficiency of oxidized multi- walled carbon nanotubes is studied. Methods: The study is Experimental. The multi-walled carbon nanotubes were oxidized and Three PH 4, 7 and 10 and contact times 5, 10 and 40 min, and the concentrations of 50, 100 and 125 mg of carbon nanotubes from aqueous Pb removal efficiency were examined.All of the tests were done according to the standard methods for the examination of water and wastewater book 21th edited..Real samples of drinking water was the village of Ebrahim Abad RazaviSirjan. Data analysis was done using SPSS statistical software version 16 Results: By Simultaneous changes in time and PH was changed the efficiency of lead removal by the oxidized multi- walled carbon nanotubes. The most important factor in increasing the efficiency of removal, using acidic PH (PH =4) is. With a Simultaneous increase in contact time and concentration of nanotubes, the removal efficiency increased. In optimal conditions, 125 mg of nanotube concentration, contact time of 10 minutes and PH=4 removal of lead in synthetic samples and real samples, respectively, 99.1 and 94% were achieved. In total there is little difference between the real conditions and the synthetic conditions of the removal efficiency that this difference arises from the interaction of cations, anions and heavy metals in real samples. Conclusion: Oxidized multi-walled Carbon nanotubes has a high capacity for the removal of lead from aqueous solutions.
