In the present work we report a simple and effective method for the purification of water. The grafting of metallic Ag was done over hydrophilic nature of GO sheets. The morphology and crystallinity of the nanocomposite were studied using SEM and X-Ray Diffractometer. The metal-GO sheet exhibits excellent water treatment performance could be helpful in purifying water especially the control of bacteria and Total Dissolved Solid (TDS).
