Carbons materials are widely used adsorbent. Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) are the new member of carbon family. They have been use in various fields such as composite reinforcements, sensors and others due to their extraordinary mechanical, electrical, thermal and structural properties. CNTs which have very large specific areas aside from high chemical and thermal stabilities make very attractive adsorbents. Many researches have been made to find the optimal condition for CNTs to operate. One of them is the affinity of the CNTs for certain type of wastewater. In the introduction, I will describe about the waste water and heavy metals in the background study. I will also explain about why heavy metals are hazardous and the importance of removing it from the wastewater. I will also explain about the problem statement and the objective of the experiments. Lastly, I'll define my scope of study. In the literature review, I'll first define the adsorption and introduce the CNTs. After that I' II state all the past research of several researchers about the optimal condition for CNTs adsorption including pH, temperature and others. Then I'll move to the research methodology which consist of the experiment variables, research methodology, equipment that needed for the experiment and the raw materials for this experiments. Since the experiment is still in progress, I just put the observation that I can see during the experimentation. I'll also explain the reason behind the observation. Finally, I conclude my report.
