The adsorption of 3,5-Dimethyl phenol from aqueous solution by Jordanian porcelanite rock has been investigated as a function of initial concentration, adsorbent dose, contact time at constant temperature and pH of solution. Porcelanite get removal efficiency equal to 99.71% at about 1 hour of contact time, with 20 g of porcelanite and about 50 ppm concentrations of 3,5- Dimethyl phenol in organic solutions which was indicated by Total Organic Carbon and UV absorption spectroscopy technique. The physical and chemical characterization, were done using X- Ray Fluorescence, X-Ray Diffraction, Scanning Electron Microscope, Thermogravimetric analysis and Specific Surface Area. The porcelanite rock represents a low cost alternative natural material adsorbent, used as a filter and for the removal of toxic inorganic and organic materials from aqueous solutions
