Abstract: 
In this work activated carbon (AC) was used for the removal of cephalexin (CFX) from aqueous solution in a fixed-bed column. The breakthrough curves of the adsorption process of CFX on the walnut shell AC at different mass of the adsorbent, flow rate and initial CFX concentration were determined.
