Organic and inorganic pollutants are two broad classes of pollutants in the environment with their main sources from waste waters that are indiscriminately dumped from chemical related industries. Among the organic pollutants are dyes that come as effluents from the textile industries. Toxic metals are the main inorganic pollutants with their sources from industries such as mining, electroplating, batteries etc. The presence of both classes of pollutants in the aquatic environment poses a serious threat to aquatic organisms and humans who depend on these waters for domestic purpose. Therefore, this research focused on the fabrication of materials and designing of methods for removal of both classes of pollutants from their aqueous solutions.
