In this study, the adsorption of Copper Cu (II) and methyl Orange (MO) from aqueous solution, on Tamanrasset’s unmodified and modified Kaolinite clay which as low cost adsorbents, was studied using batch experiments. The adsorption study includes both equilibrium adsorption isotherms, kinetics and thermodynamics study. For the characterization of the adsorbent several properties are determined such as pH, the Specific Surface Area, the Point of Zero Charge and the Cation Exchange Capacity. Indeed, various parameters were investigated such as contact time, initial metal and dye concentration, mass of solid, pH of the solution and temperature. The adsorption process as batch study was investigated under the previews experimental parameters.
