Abstract

In recent years, there has been an enormous amount of research and development in the area of removal of phenol by various physio-chemical methods due to their carcinogenic nature and pungent odour. The MOEF has set a maximum concentration level of 1 mg/L of phenol in industrial effluents for safe discharge into surface waters, the WHO recommends a permissible phenolic concentration of 0.001 mg/L in potable water. Recent findings suggested that advances in nanotechnology and nano structured materials have allowed the modification of existing adsorbents which increase the potential of these technologies. Among various methods, adsorption is effective method due to simplicity, less economic and easy design.
