Biological Decolorization of Synthetic Dyes: A Review

Authors(3) :-G. Joshi, G. Vyas, N. Bhojak

Both synthetic and natural dyes are widely used in various industries particularly in Textile Industries. Many harmful and hazardous effects of synthetic dyes have been reported, but these are using very commonly worldwide. One of the most important problems of synthetic dyes is its decolorization. Scientists have been trying to remove the colour with the help of certain chemicals, fungi, bacteria, algae, and many other techniques, but Biological Decolorization of Synthetic Dyes is very common and most effective method. In the present paper review has been done about various process used in Biological Decolorization of Synthetic Dyes.
