ABSTRACT

Organic dyes are considered as serious water pollutants. There are several ways for removal of these compounds from environment, which are mainly based on biological, chemical, and physical methods. In this paper, we first classify the common organic dyes which are in use in today's industry; then, methods of their elimination from environmental water and wastewater will be discussed very briefly, with an emphasize on adsorption techniques. At the end, some modern advanced adsorbents are presented.
