A novel Schiff base ligand based nano-composite adsorbent (NCA) was prepared for the detection and removal of copper (Cu(II)) ions in wastewater samples. Upon the addition of Cu(II) ions to NCA at optimum conditions, the clear color was visible to the naked-eye in the detection system. This NCA exhibited an obvious color change from yellowish to dark green in the presence of Cu(II) ions in aqueous solution. The NCA could detect the Cu(II) ions over other foreign ions with high sensitivity and selectivity. For adsorption behaviour, influences several factors such as solution pH, contact time, concentration for Cu(II) ion adsorption was investigated by batch experiment in detail. The results showed that neutral solution pH was suitable to get optimum Cu(II) ions adsorption.
