Plant materials derived from Tamarindus indicia, Emblica officinalis and Ficus religiosa have been probed for their sorption abilities towards Ammonia from polluted waters with respect to varying physicochemical parameters such as pH, agitation time and sorbent dosage. Batch types of extraction methods have been adopted. The conditions of extraction have been optimized for the maximum removal of Ammonia from waste waters. The procedures developed are successfully applied to the samples collected from effluents of Industries and polluted lakes.
