 magnetical nanocomposite based on sawdust, magnetic nanoparticles, and polyethylenimine was prepared to remove Pb(II), Cd(II) and Cu(II) ions from an aqueous solution. Adsorption on nanocomposite exhibited a maximum removal of 97% for Pb(II)‏. The adsorption capacity in the pseudo-second-order model for Pb(II) was studied and the value of 1.48 mg/g was obtained.
