In the past decades, polymer and polymer-based nanocomposite adsorbents have been emerging as promising materials for the removal of various pollutants from contaminated waters, in terms of strong mechanical strength, excellent hydraulics performance, high stability, and tunable surface chemistry. In general, the adsorption of target pollutant is highly dependent upon the physicochemical structure of adsorbent materials, such as skeleton chemistry, pore structure, surface functional groups as well as the encapsulated moieties. This chapter reviews the synthesis, structure, and adsorption mechanism of polymer and polymer-based nanocomposite adsorbents utilized for the removal of various organic and inorganic pollutants. Also, the application of these materials is particularly concerned.
