Role of Nanomaterials on the Removal of Pollutants from Water

R S Dubey | Yaman S [2]


Abstract: Availability of pollutant free drinking water is a major concern in the present era. Rapid industrialization, urbanization and developments in agricultural sector have led to incorporation of various toxic as well as nanosized pollutants into the water bodies. The pollutants can vary from heavy metals to organic dyes along with various hazardous chemicals. Hence introduction of efficient techniques and their timely implementation is the need of the hour for treatment of wastewater. Nanofibres have been used in membrane technology for the purification of waste water. The technique of electro spinning has been in recent trends for the fabrication of effective membrane system. This review paper focuses on the use of electro spinning, modification of electrospun nanofibre membranes and their role in removal or degradation of pollutants from water.
