Aromatic hydrocarbons, as benzene, toluene and xylene were removed by adsorption into a commercial organoclay as an alternative for wastewater treatment and the aim of this study was to evaluated modifications on the structure of the organoclay due to the adsorption process of BTX, which is relevant for the next studies of regeneration of this adsorbent. From mercury porosimetry analysis it was observed that the largest number of pores of organoclay occurs to a diameter close to 200*10
