Abstract: In this analysis, the efficacy of adding coagulants such as Phaseolus lunatus and Phaseolus vulgaris (polymers) to the coagulation process during the treatment of arsenic aqueous solution to extract the arsenic metal was investigated. Experiments were carried out to evaluate the output of Phaseolus lunatus and Phaseolus vulgaris, both individually and in combination with arsenic, using the standard Jar test protocol. P.lunatus and P.vulgaris were given doses ranging from 1 to 3 gm. For P.lunatus and P.vulgaris, the (optimal) removal efficiency for total arsenic in the aqueous solution was obtained at 2gm. With chemical affinity between arsenic and coagulants used in this process, the valence state of arsenic may affect removal efficiency during the chemical coagulation process. pH is discovered to be a significant factor that has a direct or indirect impact on results. By overcoming the isoelectric point, the complex formed by the interaction of the inorganic pollutant and organic coagulant may aid in the removal of arsenic at pH 9 and 8. P.lunatus and P.vulgaris had optimised arsenic initial concentrations of 57.1µg/L and 42.6µg/L, respectively. The coagulation mechanism is more prevalent in water treatment, as shown by the above findings.
