Abstract: This study presents activated carbon from sugarcane bagasse (SB) as adsorbent of drugs (Levofloxacin, Hydrochlorothiazide and Paracetamol). Effect of different variables (contact time, initial drug concentration and dose of adsorbent) was studied at acidic pH. SB was characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Chemical treatments resulted in pore formation within SB sample while surfaces of untreated SB sample were without pores. Maximum adsorption (37%) of drugs from solution was in1-3 h. Adsorption followed Langmuir isotherm model.
