Recent developments in technological approaches to remediate Hg-contaminated soil, water, and air, are evaluated with a focus on emerging materials and innovative technologies. Extensive research on various nanomaterials for mercury removal is examined as well as characteristics of emerging materials, including graphene, biochar, metal organic frameworks, covalent organic frameworks, layered double hydroxides, clay minerals, and manganese oxides. The review also examines the performance of technologies with the aid of these materials as well as technologies involving organisms.
