    Abstract:

    Nanotechnology has immersed as a versatile platform that could provide efficient ,cost-effective and environmentally acceptable solutions to the global sustainability challenges facing society. Keeping this point in view ,it was thought to be important to study the adsorption of heavy metal ions on the abundantly available natural materials which as such are waste from our point of view .Such materials can be nanoparticles, nanocomposites, seeds etc.
    In the present research paper we have chosen copper urea formaldehyde and copper oxide urea formaldehyde for this purpose. Among transition metals copper nanoparticles are of special interest because of their efficiency as nanofluids in heat transfer applications.The main goal of the research paper is to synthesize, investigate ,characterized the materials and study their applications towards the removal of pollutants from water and waste water. Nanosize copper nanoparticle has been prepared by using polyol method .By using urea formaldehyde (UF),copper urea formaldehyde nanocomposite was prepared.The prepared Cu-UF nanocomposite was used for efficient and cost effective removal of Ni(II)from solution with 80% nickel removal capacity within 15 minutes. The significant adsorption of Ni(II) by Cu-UF nanocomposite was found in the pH range of 6.6-7.0 and followed Langmuir Adsorption isotherm.
    Also the CuO urea formaldehyde nanocomposite was synthesize from the prepared copper oxide nanoparticles. The characterization of the prepared nanoparticle and nanocomposite was done using XRD,SEM,TGA-DTA AND TEM techniques. The extent of adsorption of Nickel greatly increases with increase in the amount of adsorbent having maximum percentage of 79% with 0.8 mg adsorbent. Thus ,it can be concluded that these nanocomposites can be attributed for the removal of heavy metal from industrial waste with great efficiency at low cost of preparation.
