Alginate Based Nano Composites for the Removal

  title={Alginate Based Nano Composites for the Removal},
  author={Rais Ahmad and Anam Javed Mirza},
Heavy metals discharged from various industries like electroplating, leather tanning, paint, textile and dying units are the primary cause of water pollution [1]. They pose serious threats to public health and environment due to their high toxicity, bio accumulative and non-biodegradable behavior [1,2]. Therefore, Water purification is emerging as a critical need for the researchers owing to the increasing globalization and urbanization [3].
