Enhanced industrial activity after the industrial revolution has led to the discharge of chemicals, which causes environmental and public health problems. The presence of heavy metals in the environment is of major concern because of their extreme toxicity and tendency for bioaccumulation in the food chain even in relatively low concentrations. The present review researches the sprouting of Ipomea palmata leaves powder on biosorption of Nickel metal present in a aqueous fluid arrangement. The impacts of different parameters (Time, pH, Dosage, Size, Concentration and Temperature) on biosorption of Nickel are studied. Removal of Nickel attained an equilibrium maximum of 30 mins. And slightly decreases with increasing Nickel concentration. The trial information gave solid match with Freundlich isotherm taken after by Langmuir and Temkin isotherms.
