Abstract: Application of dead macrofungus, Fomotopsis carnea for the sorption of three cationic dyes viz., Orlamar Red BC (ORBG), Orlamar Blue G (OBG) and Orlamar Red GTL (ORGTL) has been investigated. This study mainly focuses on the effect of various sorption kinetic parameters for the uptake of ORBG. Fomitopsis carnea shows excellent sorption potential for all the dyes studied. Saturation capacities for ORBG, OBG and ORGTL are 503.1, 545.2 and 643.9 mg g(-1) respectively. Biosorption in the batch adsorber can be described by first-order reaction kinetics. Sorption decreases with decrease in pH. Copyright (C) 1996 IAWQ.
