Editorial

Synthesis of the nano-adsorbent has become one of the crucial areas of research emphasizing on environmental protection and water remediation issue. This work involves the production of Graphene Oxide Soda-Lime Glass Composite(GOGC), with excellent adsorption capacities as filter media, prepared using simple one pot hydrothermal reaction (post activation of the soda lime glass) followed by thermal ageing of the composite from colored glass containing metal oxides and Graphene oxide. Characterization of the novel adsorbent has been done using Scanning Electron Microscopy and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy. Batch experiments were performed to quantify the adsorption kinetics and adsorption capacities of the nano- composite Performance of the synthesized composite was evaluated for the removal of organic components and adsorption of As (V). The synthesized nano-composite exhibited higher dye removal efficiency, better adsorption capacities for heavy metals, removal of turbidity and organic matter. This improved performance may be due to better synergistic molecular interactions of metal oxides in the soda lime glass, the functionalized groups in Graphene Oxide and greater surface area of the GOGC. Results have illustrated high potential of the newly synthesized nano adsorbent material for ground water and wastewater treatment purposes.
