Scholarcy highlights

  • Protein is one of the key components of dissolved organic matter and poses challenges in water treatment such as membrane fouling
  • nanographene oxide was synthesized by incorporating some changes in a modified Hummer's method and characterized by various physicochemical methods
  • We demonstrated the excellent adsorption potential of NGO for the removal of LYZ and bovine serum albumin from solution
  • We observed that the adsorption isotherm obeyed the nonlinear Langmuir model; maximal adsorption capacities of 1743.23 and 1156.54 mg g−1 were estimated for LYZ and BSA, respectively
