Nickel is a toxic element and pollutes water.Nickel ions were removed by photocatalytic reduction over bismuth vanadate powder. The effect of different variables like pH, metal ion concentration, amount of bismuth vanadate, light intensity, etc. on the rate of removal was investigated and conditions for removal were optimized.A tentative mechanism for this reaction has been proposed.
