This review highlights the adsorption process by using iron oxide minerals as the adsorbent for arsenic removal from water. It includes the characteristics of arsenic in water and its toxicities, the adsorption process for arsenic removal from contaminated water, iron oxide minerals as the adsorbent, arsenic adsorption capacity on iron oxide minerals, main factors of the adsorption, and arsenic removal from water by the adsorption process, as well as the mechanisms by which arsenic species adsorb on iron oxide minerals.
