In this study, humic acid which contains both hydrophobic and hydrophilic moieties is successfully entrapped in sol-gel matrix which is used to reduce the chemical oxygen demand (COD) of Gaza wastewater. The method was very efficient in which more than 90% reduction of the COD had been achieved, it was found that contact time with the matrix, temperature, pH, particles size, adsorbent dose, and agitation speed effect...
