    In the present study, the use of cheap, ecofriendly and abundantly available waste weed as a raw material for producing adsorbent is investigated. Achyranthes aspera Linn. plant is widespread in the world as a weed, which is locally available on road sides and wastelands. The main aim of this study is to investigate the potentiality of Achyranthes aspera Linn stem as an adsorbent for the adsorption of malachite green. The powdered raw material and chemically treated material of specific micron size is used for the removal of the malachite green from aqueous solution. Adsorption capacity is studied by using malachite green as dye at various temperature. The results revealed that the removal of dye by chemically treated material is more effective than raw material at higher temperature. The experimental data is analyzed using Freundlich and Langmuir isotherm models and it is fit with these isotherm models. The adsorption capacities (Qm) are calculated as 27.4, 29.7, 28.3 at 25,35 and450C respectively . It can be useful as low cost, efficient, potential and ecofriendly adsorbent for the treatment of effluents.
