Bimetallic nanoparticles are the complex combination of two different metal constituents in nanoscale. Water and wastewater treatment utilizing bimetallic particles is an emerging research area. When two metals are combined, it can show not only the properties of its constituents but also new and enhanced properties derived by the synergy of the combination. These properties of bimetallic nanoparticles inevitably depend on the size, structure, and morphology of the particles. Thus the adopting synthesis strategy is very crucial to achieve desired results. Here in this review, the various bimetallic synthesis strategies are compared. The bimetallic nanoparticles decontaminate water through adsorption and/or catalysis mechanism. The various degradation pathways, specifically, adsorption, reduction, oxidation, and advanced oxidation processes are discussed in detail in this review.
