	%X Activated carbon is an amorphous carbon chain which
has extremely extended surface area. High surface area of activated
carbon is due to the porous structure. Activated carbon, using a
variety of materials such as coal and cellulosic materials; can be
obtained by both physical and chemical methods. The prepared
activated carbon can be used for decolorize, deodorize and also can
be used for removal of organic and non-organic pollution. In this
study, pomegranate peel was subjected to 800W microwave power
for 1 to 4 minutes. Also fresh pomegranate peel was used for the
reference material. Then ZnCl2 was used for the chemical activation
purpose. After the activation process, activated pomegranate peels
were used for the adsorption of Zn metal (40 ppm) in the waste water.
As a result of the adsorption experiments, removal of heavy metals
ranged from 89% to 85%.
