Iron oxide nanomaterials are attractive for removal of harmful metal ions from the water due to their significant features like small size, high surface area to volume ratio and magnetic property. Magnetic property of iron oxide nanomaterials enables easy separation of adsorbents from the system and can be reused for further application. Re-usability of iron oxide nanomaterials reduces economic burden.
