Water hyacinth has received attention because of it s potential to remove pollutants when utilized as a biological filtration system. It could remove several heavy me tals as well as some organics. In the present work, water hyacinths from fresh as well as polluted water were collected. FTIR and XRF were utilized to study the structure of water hyacinth collected from different media. Semi emperical quantum mechanical calculations were util ized at PM6 level of theory to simulate the molecular struc ture of the plant based on the obtained experimenta l results. Results concluded that, water hyacinth could be des cribed as a composite of cellulose and lignin as we ll as some metal oxides
