Carbon nanotubes have been considered as dye adsorbent. The colored wastewater must be treated to reduce the environmental risks. Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the efficiency of multi-walled carbon nanotubes for removal of 2-naphthol orange dye from aqueous solutions. Methods: This experimental study was conducted at school of public health affiliated to Yazd University of medical sciences during 2012. The effects of different parameters including detention time, PH value,

All experiments were repeated twice and then adsorption isotherms and kinetics of different models were analyzed by comparing the coefficient of determination. Findings: The maximum dye adsorption occurred during the first 30 minutes. The sorption capacity
