The increment of industrialization brings metal nanoparticles (MNPs) contamination and different waste materials into the world. These hazardous toxic substances may be accessible in water conditions. Water pollution with MNPs causes severe adverse impacts on a wide range of aquatic animals and plants. Phytoremediation is an eco-accommodating and practical measure for the elimination of toxic metals including MNPs from polluted water bodies. The assurance of a suitable plant species is the biggest perspective for productive phytoremediation. The utilization of water plants holds steep capability for the removal of normal and inorganic pollutions. Aquatic weeds like water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes), duckweed (Lemna minor) water lettuce (Pistia stratiotes L.), and several other submerged plants are prominent metal accumulator plants that can be used for the removal of MNPs. The tremendous advancement of aquatic plants can add to the issue of water pollution; regardless, these plants can be utilized to handle other natural problems which are executed in today's life.
