The water, wastewater and air are the main sources of aniline in environment. Aniline has a toxic effect in the human body and environment and so, must be determined by novel techniques. In this study, the activated carbon with microwave heating methods (MHM-ACNPs) were used for extraction aniline from waters by dispersive ionic liquid solid phase extraction procedure (D-IL-SPE) and compared to the activated carbon (AC). For this purpose, the mixture of acetone, ionic liquid and 30 mg of

After sonication for 10 min, the benzene ring in aniline as electron acceptor was chemically adsorbed on carboxylic groups of MHM-ACNPs as electron donors (MHM-ACNPs-COO─......C6H5-NH2) and then, the adsorbent was collected by IL phase in bottom of conical centrifuging tube. Finally, the aniline was released from MHM-ACNPs in remained solution by changing pH and the concentration of aniline determined by GC-FID.
