Poornima Shukla*

ABSTRACT

From ancient times plants are used for the treatment of different types of diseases. Plants are also have ability to purify waste water. Water is indispensable for human health and well-being; there can be no life on Earth without water. However, that same water can do harm to our body if not purified. This review was aimed at examining natural plant extracts in order to develop inexpensive ways for rural communities to purify their drinking water. The study involved creating an inventory of plant extracts that have been used for water and waste water purification. Locally available seeds and leaves used for water purification. Treatment with these natural coagulants helped in the coagulation of the heavy metals like Lead, Nickel, Copper, etc. present in the raw water samples. The study reveals that seeds and leaf extracts were also more effective in clearing and in sedimentation of suspended organic and inorganic matter present in water sample. In general, other plants should be studied in order to solve the problem of water quality especially in developing countries. In such a case plant species can contribute to advancing the goal of sustainable water treatment technologies that are themselves sustainable. This work suggests the use of these plants for water purification, which are an economical and eco-friendly approach.
