Dye Adsorption on Nanocomposite

Ayesha Kausar


This article focuses carbon nanotube as adsorbent material for toxic contaminants. Carbon nanotube is an emerging adsorbent materials for the removal of pollutants from wastewaters. Carbon nanotube-based nanocomposites have adsorption capability towards toxic contaminants including dyes. Adsorption of dyes on nanotube depends on various parameters such as dye concentration, contact time, temperature, pH, etc. Functionalization of nanotube has enhanced the dye adsorption efficiency owing to functional groups on the surface, relative to neat nanotubes. In addition, nanocomposites have been designed for enhanced dye removal efficiency of these materials. It is evident that carbon nanotube-based nanocomposite nanosorbents have fine potential for the removal of dyes from aqueous solution. These are cost effective and environmental friendly materials. New functional carbon nanotube-based nanosorbents must be designed for efficient commercial dye removal applications.
