As an effective, effcient, and economic approach for water purification, adsorbents and adsorption processes have been widely studied and applied in di erent aspects for a long time. In the recent years, a lot of novel adsorption processes have been developed for enhancing the effciency of removing the organic and inorganic contaminants from water. This article reviews some new adsorbents and advanced adsorption methods that specialize in their compositions, structures, functions, and characteristics used in water treatment. The review emphasizes adsorption/catalytic oxidation process, adsorption/catalytic reduction process, adsorption coupled with redox process, biomimetic sorbent and its sorption behaviors of POPs, and modified adsorbents and their water purification e ciency.
