Reductive adsorption of chromium (Cr) has been investigated, employing coal-based activated carbon with batchwise study. The adsorption was carried out by varying parameters such as pH of the aqueous solution and contact time. Cr(III) was hardly adsorbed on activated carbon, and it was precipitated at high pH region. High adsorption amounts of Cr(VI) was obtained at pH range 4.5 – 5.5. In the adsorption process, reduction of Cr(VI) to Cr(III) was occurred at especially acidic pH region, and thus most of Cr remained in the aqueous solution in this pH region was Cr(III).
