Water purification is imperative for the welfare of a healthy population. Water is widely contaminated by recalcitrant organic chemicals such a pesticides, herbicides and hormones. One inexpensive method for purifying water from these types of molecules is through adsorption. One suite of materials for this adsorption is based upon organoclays. This paper reviews the adsorption of organics on organoclays. © 2010 Elsevier Inc.
