Elutrilithe is a mixed alumina-silicate/carbon material and a solid waste of coal mines. In this study we tried to produce a new adsorbent from elutrilithe. The elutrilithe was treated with zinc chloride in an N-2 medium. The adsorption capacity of the new adsorbent was measured with MCPA (4-chloro-2-methylphenoxy-acetic acid), which is a pesticide.
