The novel trends in green separation processes impose the need for application of natural, low-cast and
high-efficiency selective adsorbents, such as natural zeolite, within the processes for the treatment of drinking water
supplies. Lately, nano-porous inorganic sorbents represent an ongoing trend for elimination of heavy metals from water
resources. In the frame of this work, the nanoporous material, clinoptilolite,was applied for removal of Ni(II) ions fr om
water resource. The experimental results were obtained in a laboratory scale batch glass reactor with continuous stirring
at 400 rpm. The effects of the mass of the nano-porous adsorbent and the initial pH of the solution were studied to optimize
the conditions for maximal removal of Ni(II) ions. MATLAB/Curve Fitting Toolboxwas implemented to determine
the adequate adsorption isotherm as well as to optimize the equilibrium state of the investigated system.
