In the present study, iron oxide nanoparticles were obtained by green synthesis, using as a reducing agent the rosa damascene (RD) and as an oxidizing agent heptahydrate ferric chloride (analytical grade); nanoparticles were characterized, by X-Ray Diffraction the obtaining magnetite was determined; and by Scanning Electron Microscope, the micrographs expose particle dimensions from 22 nm to 93 nm, with spherical geometry and remarkable dispersion. The nanoparticles were used to package a filter column where sawdust, dolomite and activated carbon were also used, due to they all have a high adsorption capacity. Water contaminated with a known concentration of arsenic flowed through the column. When analyzing the water filtered in the column by Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy, it was concluded that arsenic was removed in its entirety, which remained trapped in the column.
