In this paper, poly(amido primary-secondary amine) (PAPSA) as a high capacity polymeric adsorbent was synthesized. Dye removal ability of PAPSA from single and binary systems was investigated. The functional groups of PAPSA were studied using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR). Acid Blue 92 (AB92), Direct Red 23 (DR23), and Direct Red 81 (DR81) were used as model compounds. The kinetic and isotherm of dye adsorption were studied. The effect of operational parameter such as adsorbent dosage, dye concentration, and pH on dye removal was evaluated. It was found that adsorption of dyes onto PAPSA showed Langmuir isotherm. The maximum dye adsorption capacity (Q 0) of PAPSA was 10000 mg/g, 12500 mg/g, and 10000 mg/g for AB92, DR23, and DR81, respectively. Adsorption kinetic of dyes followed pseudo-second order kinetics. Dye desorption tests showed that the dye release of 85 % for AB92, 91 % for DR23 and 89 % for DR81 were achieved in aqueous solution at pH 12. The results showed that the PAPSA as a polymeric adsorbent with high dye removal ability might be a suitable alternative to remove dyes from colored wastewater.
