ABSTRACT
This paper focuses on sorption of hexavalent chromium onto biosorbents prepared from different biological materials and clay minerals. It describes their characteristics, mechanism of sorption and chemical pretreatment. It further characterizes sorption capability and capacity of the sorbent. The aim of the article is to evaluate the sorption process in removing hexavalent chromium from aqueous solutions as an alternative
to the commercial and commonly used methods.

Keywords: hexavalent chromium, adsorption, algae, cyanobacteria, clay minerals
