Mercury is a toxic metal, thus, it is an element which has more and more restrictions in its uses, but despite the above, the removal of this metal, from whatever the form in which it is encountered (zero valent metal, inorganic, or organic compounds), and from different sources, is of a widespread interest. In the case of Hg(II), or Hg2+, the investigations about the treatment of Hg(II)-bearing liquid effluents (real or in most cases synthetic solutions) appear not to end, and from the various separation technologies, adsorption is the most popular among researchers. In this topic, and in the 2019 year, more than 100 publications had been devoted to this field: Hg(II)-removal-adsorption. This work examined all of them. View Full-Text
