The presence of metal ions in aqueous solutions represents a major environmental problem. These inorganic species are persistent and non-biodegradable pollutants that should be eliminated from water. In the recent years biosorption have emerged as an economical and environmental friendly method for the decontamination of polluted water. The present work represents a review of the recently published literature discussing the use of non-modified biosorbents for the removal of metal ions from… Expand
