Removal of nitrogen containing compounds by adsorption: a review

Ali Mohammad, Mohd Imran Ahamed, Arshi Amin, Inamuddin

Nitrogen occurs in all living organism. It is a key constituent in a number of compounds which are chemically and biologically of great importance. In this review, chemically and biologically active nitrogen containing compounds specially pyridine, nicotinic acid and aniline are discussed. These nitrogen containing compounds play an important role for the survival of human beings, animals as well as plants. Therefore, their importance and the threats they impose on living beings and on the environment are described briefly. Therefore, these compounds are being removed from the environment by various methods. However, in this review the adsorption method for the removal of pyridine, nicotinic acid and aniline is being discussed.
