Carbon-based nanomaterials (CBNMs) have attracted significant alert due to the affluent science underpinning their implementations associated with a novel mixture of high aspect proportions, greater thermal and electrical performance, outstanding optical features, and high exterior area. CBNMs not only bear assurance in a broad range of implementations in medication, nano and microelectronics, and ecological remedies but may also be utilized in practical laboratory determinations. More specifically, CBNMs perform as an outstanding adsorbent in terminating heavy metal ions (HMI) from wastewater. There is presently a deficiency of powerful threat inspection instruments owing to their complex detection and related deficit in the health risk database. Therefore, our present review concentrates on spreading CBNMs to release pollutants from wastewater. The article wraps the effect of these contaminants and photocatalytic strategies towards treating these mixtures in wastewater, along with their restrictions and challenges, convincing resolutions, and possibilities of these approaches.
