Water pollution is a global issue that has significant economic and social consequences for both environment and human health [1, 2]. The rising shortage of useable water resources necessitates adequate wastewater treatment. In this context, finding less expensive, safer, and more efficient wastewater treatment technology is critical. The use of nanotechnology in wastewater treatment is one potential technique that has seen success in numerous studies. Pharmaceuticals compounds (PhCs) are one of the most common types of emerging pollutants [3]. Their inadequate disintegration and the indiscriminate dumping of waste from the industries, farms and medical centers have allowed for these chemicals to become part of various water bodies of the surrounding region. The presence of PhCs in water sources has been well documented all around the world. They have a negative influence on the growth of organisms, especially aquatic one.
