In this experiment, it would be developed Fe-Metal Organic Frameworks basis (MOFs) as a binding agent in Diffusive Gradient in Thin Film (DGT) to discover the capacity of phosphate adsorption that is influenced by phosphate concentration and mixing time. Phosphorus (P) is one of the materials that are common used by industrial can induced eutrophication phenomenon. This study will evaluate the effect of mixing time and phosphate concentration in phosphate loading capacity. These parameters can be considered for measuring the capacity of phosphate adsorption. The results of phosphate analysis showed that the % recovery value of Fe-MOFs in the DGT system was 81.29%. The diffusion coefficient of DGT Fe-MOF was 4.74 × 10-7 cm2/s. The accumulated phosphate will be increased in a row with time increasing. The capacity of phosphate adsorption optimum in 10 mg/l phosphate concentration. In the final result, it can be concluded that phosphate will be adsorped optimally using Fe-MOF in DGT.
