Abstract—Fe3O4 (magnetite) nanoparticles were synthesized by chemical co-precipitation method. The structure, morphology and magnetic properties of as-prepared were characterized by X Ray Diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscope-Energy Dispersive X Ray Spectrometry (SEM-EDS), Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) and Vibrating Sample Magnetometer (VSM). The result of XRD characterization was indicated Fe3O4 as the product. SEM and TEM image of the Fe3O4 showed nanoparticles Fe3O4 have the mean diameter 5-20 nm. The EDS spectra showed strong peaks of Fe and O. Magnetic characteristic of Fe3O4 nanoparticles was indicated super paramagnetic properties. The saturation magnetic was 89.46 emu g-1. Therefore, the nanoparticles Fe3O4 is suitable to remove dye in the water by a simple magnetic separation process. The optimum adsorption occurred at initial concentration of procion dye 100 mg L-1, pH solution 6, dosage of Fe3O4 0.8 g L-1 and contact time 30 minutes under room temperature with color removal 24.40 % and adsorption capacity was 30.503 mg g-1.

Index Terms—Fe3O4 nanoparticles, co-precipitation, adsorption, dye
