Composite M2+/Al-BC (Ca/Al-BC, Cu/Al-BC, and Ni/Al-BC) have been successfully synthesized. Composite and pristine materials were used as adsorbents of cadmium(II) [Cd(II)] in an aqueous solution. Firstly the performance of composite and pristine materials was evaluated by reusability properties until five cycles adsorption process followed with a determination of isotherms and adsorption thermodynamic properties. The results show composite has ten-fold surface area properties than starting materials. The adsorption capacities of CaAl-BC, CuAl-BC, and NiAl-BC at a temperature of 333 K were 156.250 mg/g, 149.254 mg/g, and 208.333 mg/g, respectively.
