What is it about?

This study provides evidence of a straightforward and cutting-edge synthetic approach for the production of biowaste-based environmentally friendly metal adsorbents that preserve green chemistry while exhibiting exceptional metal adsorption efficiency. The approach was developed in order to produce metal adsorbents that can remove metals from the aqueous environment without negatively impacting the environment.

Why is it important?

For successful and high-end wastewater treatment, it is crucial to appreciate how simple and inexpensive the procedure is. It also contributes to the UN's sustainable development objectives and is consistent with green chemistry. Research of this kind would greatly increase green chemistry's relevance and use.


It was a real joy for me to write this article with co-authors I've worked with for years. This research also provided an innovative and economical synthetic approach to develop such adsorbents which can regulate effective treatment of wastewater.
