Industrial waste disposal is one of the major causes for the contamination of water bodies and soil. This leads to increase in the amount of elements like phosphorous in the water bodies. As a possible solution to this problem, we investigate the effect of introducing a nano sized coating of graphene on coastal sand in the adsorption of phosphate. In the present study we employ batch adsorption techniques to perform Phosphate adsorption (p-Adsorption) on rich black coastal sand and nano composite. This will help us in understanding the physical properties of clay soils, the effect of nanoscale coating on the adsorption of phosphate in soil and its dependence on contact time, concentration and ph values.
