	%X The present work was conducted for Arsenic (III)
removal, which one of the most poisonous groundwater pollutants, by
synthetic nano size zerovalent iron (nZVI). Batch experiments were
performed to investigate the influence of As (III), nZVI
concentration, pH of solution and contact time on the efficiency of As
(III) removal. nZVI was synthesized by reduction of ferric chloride
by sodium borohydrid. SEM and XRD were used to determine
particle size and characterization of produced nanoparticles. Up to
99.9% removal efficiency for arsenic (III) was obtained by nZVI
dosage of 1 g/L at time equal to 10 min. and pH=7. It could be
concluded that the removal efficiency were enhanced with increasing
of ZVI dosage and reaction time, but decreased with increasing of
arsenic concentration and pH for nano sized ZVI. nZVI presented an
outstanding ability to remove As (III) due to not only a high surface
area and low particle size but also to high inherent activity.
