Sustainable synthesis of green novel materials for water purification has gained significant attention in recent years due to the increasing demand for clean water resources. The use of traditional water treatment technologies has led to several environmental issues and challenges, such as energy consumption, carbon footprint, and disposal of hazardous chemicals. Therefore, developing eco-friendly and sustainable materials for water purification is a vital aspect of achieving global sustainability. This chapter aims to provide an overview of sustainable synthesis methods for green novel materials for water purification, including biopolymer-based materials, carbon-based materials, and nanomaterials. The significance of water remediation has lately given birth to multiple research studies concentrating on various areas of this discipline. This chapter will concentrate on the long-term synthesis of green new materials for water purification. Furthermore, the chapter discusses the potential applications and limitations of these materials for water purification, as well as their impact on the environment.
