Herein a novel low-cost reusable adsorbent namely water chestnut (WCN) peels and fruit were used for the dye polluted wastewater treatment. Moreover, to enhance the adsorption efficiency of WCN peel and fruit it surface was modified with sodium dodecyl sulphate, whereas surface area of sample was changed via immobilizing the sample in to beads using polyvinyl alcohol- Sodium alginate. Surface modification and change in surface area reduced the adsorption potential of WCN peel and fruit for…
