In recent years there has been a rising interest in the application of nanomaterial such as silver nanoparticles (AgNps) in many areas of scientific research. The most active areas of investigation are related to the study and application of optical, biomedical, and newly applied adsorption properties of AgNps. The recent evaluation of adsorptive properties of AgNPs has added new areas to their wide range of applications in analytical separations and pre-concentrating steps. They have also been used for removal of several environmental organic pollutants and uptake of heavy metals. The main objective of this review is to describe the characteristics, mechanisms, and behavior of AgNPs as adsorbent in aquatic systems and sample solutions.
