$ZrO_2$ Powder was Prepared by sol-gel process and the adsorption characteristic of cobalt($Co^{2+}$) by $ZrO_2$ adsorbent in high-temperature water was investigated using batch adsorption experiment with a stirred autoclave. The prepared $ZrO_2$ was calcined at $600{\sim}1400^{\circ}C$ and analyzed by X-ray diffractometry, SEM, BET surface area, FT-IR and TG-DTA measurement. The tetragonal Phase of $ZrO_2$ is produced $480^{\circ}C$ from amorphous gel at temperature $480^{\circ}C$. Both tetragonal and monoclinic phase of $ZrO_2$ exist at temperature between $600^{\circ}C$ and $1000^{\circ}C$. At temperature $1200^{\circ}C$, tetragonal to monoclinic phase trasition is occurred. The $Co^{2+}$ adsorption capacity of $ZrO_2$ calcined at $600^{\circ}C$ for 4 hours is 0.16 meq $Co^{2+}/g$ adsorbent in the high temperature at $250^{\circ}C$. The adsorption of $Co^{2+}$ on the $ZrO_2$ adsorbent is irreversible endothermic in the temperature range ($125-175^{\circ}C$). The standard enthalpy change (${\Delta}H^{\circ}$) of $ZrO_2$ calcined at $600^{\circ}C$ for 4 hours is 18 kJ/gmol.
