Organic and Inorganic pollutants from a number of sources are introduced into the water reservoirs limiting the usability and placing burden on natural resources. This manuscript is an attempt based on the applied bench scale research proposing novel adsorbents for the removal of aqueous pollutants. Nitrates and Phenols are persistent in the media and are difficult to be removed. Adsorption offers a viable and technological doable option for decontamination of industrial pollutants. Nanomaterials based on silica and alumina are synthesized using different procedures and to determine the efficacy of these small particles, meso sized materials are also applied for comparison. Twelve series of batch experiment was conducted at variables of contact time, pH of the medium, adsorbent dose, and adsorbate concentration. More research in this direction is required as nanotechnology has the potential to be equally applied for remediation. This piece of work can serve a guideline for researchers in the field of synthetic chemistry, environmentalists, and policy makers.
