    Abstract

    The development of sustainable catalyst could potentially provide a long-term solution for the industrial process that required production of a large quantity of raw materials for the chemical industry from renewable resources. Hence, achieving proper designs of highly efficient, sustainable and long-term reusable catalyst is one of the environmentally crucial issues facing humanity. Here, we report the fabrication of mesoporous NiO nanocatalyst in different morphology via a simple hydrothermal method. The mesoporous NiO nanocatalysts exhibit high catalytic activity and fast removal of toxic chemical agents from aquatic life.
