The occurrence of heavy metal ions in industrial wastewater discharges is a pertinent issue. Discharges that are not properly treated causes pollution to the downstream river and groundwater which are often used for drinking and irrigation in the rural area. This thesis explores the feasibility of titanate nanotube as an industrial sorbent to remove cadmium and other divalent cations from water.
