Banana peels were hydrolyzed with alkali followed by bleaching with sodium chlorate (NaClO 3 ). The grafting co-polymerization of acrylonitrile onto the bleached pulp was carried out using Fenton’s reagent (Fe + /H 2 O 2 ) as initiator. The acrylonitrile grafted cellulosic adsorbent was used for Mn(II) removal from aqueous solution. The adsorption of Mn(II) onto grafted banana  peels was recorded to be 94 %. The adsorption equilibrium is fitted well by Langmuir isotherm model. Owing to high efficiency and low cost, grafted banana peels (GBPs) can be used as effective adsorbent for Mn(II) removal from aqueous solution and industrial waste water. Key words: Banana peel, Adsorbent, Acrylonitrile, Grafting co-polymerization. Introduction Heavy metals are introduced into the environment through natural phenomena and human activities, resulting in the contamination of environment. The discharge of industrial effluents into water bodies is a major environmental problem worldwide, because it contains toxic heavy metals and other organic and inorganic pollutants. Industrial wastewater often contains heavy metal ions which are non-biodegradable and many of them are soluble in aqueous media and easily available to living organisms. Heavy metals removal from aqueous media is an important and challenging task (Jiwan and Kalamdhad 2011; Barkat 2011). Manganese exists in water as a Mn 2+ (divalent ion) and due to its organoleptic properties it is considered a pollutant. Manganese contamination affect the appearance, color, taste and odor of water. The recommended limit of manganese in drinking water is 0.05 mg/L. It causes neurological disorder when inhaled at a rate of about 10 mgday- 1 (Adeogun et al. 2011). The chronic exposure to manganese produces lethargy, tremors, psychological disturbances and respiratory infections (Abdeen et al. 2015). The removal of Mn(II) from water is still a serious problem in various countries and it is a challenging task. Numerous methods and techniques have been utilized for the removal of heavy metals from solution such as chemical precipitation, ion exchange,    phytoextraction, ultra-filtration, reverse osmosis, and adsorption (Bailey et al. 1999; Sud et al. 2008; Demirbas 2008; Chiban et al. 2012; Choi et al. 2007; Badmus et al. 2007). However, most of these methods have some limitations, such as high operational cost, complicated design, ineffective at low metal
