Nanotechnology has emerged as an alternative to conventional water treatment methods that involve high costs and processes. Nanomaterials offer great potential for cleaning wastewater. Various nanomaterials have shown the potential to remove pollutants such as organic and inorganic content, and toxic heavy metal ions from wastewater. Nanoparticles with nanofibers and carbon nanotubes form an important part of ultrafiltration membrane, osmosis, sorption, advanced oxidation process, water remediation as well as disinfection processes. The rate of removal of contaminants from wastewater depends upon the physical and chemical characteristics of the nanomaterial, the contaminant, and wastewater

Keywords: Nanoparticles, Nanotechnology, Pollution, Purification.
