The main objective of this study is the synthesis of the (Alginate / Chitosan/ Cobalt ferrite) nanocomposites. The asdsorbent was characterized via Fourrier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffraction (DRX) and zeta potential. The adsorption tests of salicylic acid on the (Alginate / chitosan / cobalt ferrite) adsorbent were carried out at a temperature of 25°C, pH equal to 4, a mass of 10 mg and a concentration of 10 mg /L. Under these conditions, the adsorption capacity was found to be of the order of 10 mg /g, which corresponds to an equilibrium time of 90 min. The kinetics of adsorption is correctly written by the kinetic model of the pseudo second order. The adsorption data were fitted using the Langmuir and Freundlich isotherms, and the obtained modeling equilibrium adsorption data suggested that the (Alginate / Chitosan/ Cobalt ferrite) nanocomposites sample contained homogeneous adsorption sites that fit the Langmuir adsorption model well.
