The activated MgO was synthesized by microwave homo-precipitator method and characterized by SEM, EDS and FT-IR methods. It was used to adsorption of U(VI) from aqueous solution with batch system. The paper discussed the effect of pH, temperature, contact time, adsorbent dose and initial U(VI) concentration on the adsorption. The results showed that activated MgO has good adsorption capacity for U(VI), the removal rate and equilibrium adsorption capacity reached 83.5% and 84.04mg·g−1 at pH 5.0, 15mg dose and 313K,respectively. The adsorption kinetics of U(VI) onto activated MgO were better fitted with pseudo-second-order kinetic.The adsorption isotherm data were fitted well to Freundlich isotherm model.The thermodynamic parameters showed that the adsorption process is endothermic and spontaneous.
