Water pollution has become a severe global issue over the last few decades (Schwarzenbach et al. in Annu Rev Env Resour 35:109–136, 2010;Azizullah et al. in Environ Int 37:479–497, 2011;Wang and Yang in Environ Pollut 218:358–365, 2016;). Adsorption is the easy, viable and economical wastewater processing strategy (Malik in J Hazard Mater 113:81–88, 2004; Ali and Gupta in Nat Protocols 1:2661–2667, 2007; Karnitz et al. in Bioresour Technol 98:1291–1297, 2007; Hokkanen et al. in Water Res 91:156–173, 2016). Generally speaking, the adsorption efficiency for removing organic pollutants, heavy metals and anions is tightly related to the surface area.
