The removal of two anionic dyes, C.I. Acid Orange 7 (AO7) and C.I. Acid Red 17 (AR17), by ultrasound-assisted adsorption on the modified nanoclay in aqueous solutions was studied. The modified nanoclay was characterized by SEM/EDX, BET, XRD and FT-IR techniques. The average crystal size for the interlayer spacing of the modified nanoclay was about 14.3 nm. Central composite design (CCD) was used for the optimization of the operational parameters, including the initial dye concentration, sonication time, adsorbent dosage and temperature. The results demonstrated a good agreement between the predicted values obtained by the model and the experimental values for both AO7 (R2= 0.959) and AR17 (R2=0.971).
