Antibiotics in the environment can affect biotic processes, cause resistance to microorganisms, and have an effect on human health. Ciprofloxacin (CIP) is one of the antibiotics that is found as a pollutant in the aquatic environment. In this study, MCM-48 was used as a material to remove CIP from the solution. Adsorption of CIP on MCM-48 achieved the equilibrium at 80 minutes. The pseudo-second-order is the most suitable kinetics model to describe the adsorption process with a correlation coefficient value of 0.9997 and a rate constant k2 of 0.2684 g mg-1 min−1.
