Dyes are frequently let out into the environment along with wastewater sans necessary treatment. Fast, cost-effective, scientific and suitable elimination of dyes from wastewaters has been an important problem for researchers. Adsorption technique is a robust, well studied, widely employed and promising water treatment method. In the last decade, nanocarbon based adsorbents have gained attention in water treatment. These adsorbents are usually produced from low cost substrate and are found to be highly efficient than other adsorbents. Recently, graphene based nanomaterials are widely used as adsorbents to sorb various toxic organic contaminants from aqueous solutions. It showed high efficiency due to its chemical stability, structure, surface area and surface functional groups. So graphene are called as ‘miracle material’. Recently nanographene composites are proven to be a likely adsorbent for eliminating contaminants from the industrial effluents. In this chapter, we have presented briefly the synthesis of graphene and its other variants viz., GO, rGO and nano graphene composites. This chapter presents a small introduction to adsorption principles and adsorption isotherms. It explains the synthesis and use of nano graphene materials for the remediation of dyes. It also consolidates the recent literature available for dye adsorption using graphene materials and its mechanism.
