Abstract

This study includes the preparation of the hydrogel using the free radical polymerization method with the possibility of using it as an adsorption surface for a drug streptomycin from its aqueous solution. The structural and thermal properties of the hydrogel surface by using several techniques [Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), field emission scanning electron microscope (FESEM), fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR)] were study. Where the best weight of the hydrogel surface was (0.05 g) when the weight of surface increased, the removal percentage increased and the adsorption efficiency decreased, and the equilibrium time was one hour. The adsorption kinetics were studied, and it was found that the adsorption behavior follows the kinetics. The second order is based on the value of (R2= 1) compared with the first order.
