One of the suitable methods for the removal of sulfate from water is surface adsorption process. In this article, the preparation of polyaniline and its composites as adsorbents are discussed and the capability of separating sulfate from water was studied. The results compared with anthracite, activated carbon and anion exchanger. The observations indicated that the anion exchanger has the better sulfate removal percentage. Also the results show that the sulfate removal percentage increased in polyaniline-hydroxypropylcellulose/quartz composite.
