In this study, a high-performance adsorbent [email protected] was prepared by loading cobalt ions (Co2+) on activated carbon (AC) via solution impregnation and high-temperature calcination technology, and was used to remove atrazine in water. The preparation factors on the adsorbent properties were studied, and the characteristics were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), and Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR). The results showed that [email protected] possessed the best performance when the factors were 7.0% of Co2+ (w/v), 7.0 h of immersing time, 500 °C of calcination temperature and 4.0 h of calcination time. The adsorption conditions and mechanisms for atrazine removal by [email protected] were also studied scientifically. As the conditions were pH 4.0, reaction time 90 min and temperature 25 °C, [email protected] had the largest adsorption capacity, which was 92.95 mg/g, and the maximum removal rate reached 94.79%. The correlation coefficient of the Freundlich isotherm was better than that of the Langmuir isotherm, and the adsorption process followed the pseudo-second-order kinetic model. Cycle experiments showed that the removal efficiency of atrazine by [email protected] remained above 85% after five repeated experiments, indicating that [email protected] showed a strong stable performance and is a promising material for pesticides removal.
