The capability of chitosan-based MnO2 material for retention of arsenate in water was investigated for static and dynamic models. Several factors that influence the retention capacity of the material for As(V) such as pH, adsorption time, initial concentration of As(V), mixing speed (static) and competitive anions were studied. The results showed that the maximum adsorption capacity calculated from Langmuir model of As(V) on MnO2/chitosan was lower than that of chitosan (3.33 mg As/g compared to 12.5 mgAs/g). However, the retention efficiency for As(V) at low concentration (300 ppb) of MnO2/chitosan was much better than chitosan (>99% compared to 81%). MnO2/chitosan material worked with As(V) within pH range of 3.06 – 9.13 with best efficiency within pH range of 3–4. Chloride, nitrate and sulfate anions at concentrations of 8000–10000 mg/L reduced 20% retention efficientcy of As(V). The studied material showed its great promise to be useful for As(V) removal from water
