Although boron is an element of requirement for the growth of plants, animals and humans, environmental issues and health hazards are related to boron applications in various industries. Recently many techniques have been developed to remove boron from aqueous solutions; adsorption proved to be capable to treat solutions with low boron concentrations. Mg-Al bimetallic compound was synthesized and calcined. Then, was tested in a process to remove boron from aqueous solutions. Difference between calcined and non-calcined Mg-Al bimetallic compounds in removing boron from aqueous solutions were measured to determine whether the calcination process is of significant benefit. Experiments were conducted with variety of pH levels, temperatures dosage volume as well as initial boron concentration; thus finding the most suitable factors in the removing of boron in aqueous solutions using Mg-Al bimetallic compound.
