Adsorption is one of the method that is in use for remediation of contaminated water. The experimental factors affecting the batch mode of adsorption of various metals and inorganic anions are discussed in this book. The elemental contaminants have been categorized into four major categories i.e. major toxic elements; essential elements having toxicity on excessive exposure; miscellaneous elements having undetermined effects; non-toxic elements having trivial or unidentified significance. In addition, anions like nitrate, perchlorate and sulphate as water contaminants are considered. This unique volume fills a niche in the area of water treatment.
•Provides practitioners with the background they need to understand and apply batch adsorption processes to the purification of water
•Describes the actions of adsorption capacity or percentage removal with respect to factors affecting the adsorption process
•Excellent source of information for those working in the industry for remediation of metals and anions
•Discusses the current era of Anthropocene which is highly dependent on the anthropogenic mineral sources for its sustenance
