Abstract :

Nanoparticles have a great potential to be used in waste water treatment. Its unique characteristic of having high surface area can be used efficiently for removing toxic metal ions, disease causing microbes, inorganic and organic solutes from water. Various classes of nanomaterials are also proved to be efficient for water treatment like metal-containing nanoparticles, carbonaceous nanomaterials and zeolites. The paper reviews recent advances on different nanomaterials with their application in waste water treatment. Nanotechnology has led to various efficient ways for treatment of waste water in a more precise and accurate way on both small and large scale.
