The objective of this research was to design a green chemistry experiment that synthesizes magnetic citrate alginate hydrogels and test their effectiveness for the removal of methylene blue (MB) dye. Methylene blue dye is a common water pollutant that is toxic, carcinogenic, and nonbiodegradable; thus, can cause a severe threat to human health and environmental safety. Hence, there is a need to develop an environmentally friendly, efficient technology for removing MB from wastewater.
