Abstract Adsorption of L-histidine (His) over various porous adsorbents such as CMK-3, SBA-15, and activated carbon has been studied from solutions with different pH. His adsorption was observed to be pH dependent with maximum adsorption near the isoelectric point of the amino acid. CMK-3 showed a larger amount of His adsorption as compared to SBA-15 and the conventional adsorbent, namely activated carbon. CMK-3 registers the total adsorption capacity of ca. 1350 μmol/g which is ca. 12 times higher than the adsorption capacity of SBA-15. This large difference could be mainly due to the stronger hydrophobic interaction between the non-polar side chains of amino acids and the hydrophobic surface of the mesoporous carbon as compared to mesoporous silica. The influence of ionic strength on the adsorption of His has also been studied and the results are discussed. Nitrogen adsorption of CMK-3 after His adsorption confirmed that His molecules are tightly packed inside the mesopores.
