The active magnesium oxide (AMO) was synthesized by homogeneous precipitation method with microwave and characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). Adsorption of Sr(II) by AMO was investigated under the effect of AMO dosages, pH of solution, temperature and contact time and analyzed the kinetics and thermodynamics characteristics. The results showed that AMO has very good adsorption capacity on Sr(II) in aqueous solution,When pH of solution is 8.0, the solid-liquid ratio is 0.25 g·L−1, initial Sr(II) concentration is 50mg·L−1, the contact time is 80 min at 298K, the removal rate and adsorption capacity reached 98.29% and 187.5 mg·g−1, respectively. Kinetic and thermodynamic results indicate that adsorption behavior of Sr(II) by AMO fitted well with pseudo-second-order model and the Freundlich isothermal model. Adsorption thermodynamic parameters showed that the process of adsorption is spontaneous and endothermic.
