The presence of NH3-N in a watery arrangement is a major issue of environment, NH3-N is the significant water contamination. In this investigation, melon Rind for low-cost adsorbent instead of expensive technologies for removal of NH3-N from water arrangement, hence to increase the attractiveness of melon rind for absorption of NH3-N, Rind was treated with NaOH (0.3 M). To detect groups on the surface of the Rind were utilizing the Fourier Transform Infra-red (FTIR). SEM scanning electron microscopy was utilized morphological properties of the pre-arranged Melon Rind, Energy-dispersive X-beam spectroscopy (EDS) was utilized to research the Rind Surface Elements affecting adsorption are contact time, adsorbent dose, pH, NH3-N concentration, were investigated. The adsorption limit of NH3-N diminished as the adsorbent portion expanded. The Kinetic examinations showed best coordinated with the pseudo-first-order and pseudo-second-order models. The Freundlich and Langmuir isotherm models were utilized to depict the NH3-N adsorption onto the melon Rind adsorbent, the information gotten from the adsorption interaction were best agreeable with the Langmuir model with R20.9989 and a most qmax adsorption limit of 12.161mg/g.
