Abstract Latvian illite containing clays, due to their wide distribution, physically-chemical and colloidal properties, have potential application as low-cost and eco-friendly adsorbents for industrial waste purification from organic dyes, for discoloration of rapeseed oil, petroleum, oil and heavy metals. The increasing interest towards modified clays is explained by a necessity to create environmentally safe sorbents. Clays can be modified with inorganic acids and metal salts, which are part of the clay, alkali, organic additives, etc. The aim of this work is to study the adsorption of methylene blue from water solutions on to natural and modified Latvian illite containing clays and compare their sorption properties.
