Konjac glucomannan (KGM) was converted into water insoluble konjac glucomannan (WIKGM) by treating with NaOH through completely deacetylated reaction. Adsorption study was carried out for the adsorption of Pb2+ from aqueous solution using water insoluble konjac glucomannan. The influences of pH, contact time, temperature and initial Pb2+ concentration on the absorbent were studied. Results of kinetic data showed that the Pb2+ adsorption rate was fast and good correlation coefficients were obtained for the pseudo second-order kinetic model. The equilibrium process was described well by the Langmuir isotherm model with maximum adsorption capacity of 9.18 mg/g on WIKGM at 25°C.
