    With the ever-growing water pollution issues, advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) have received growing attention due to their high efficiency in the removal of refractory organic pollutants. Transition metal sulfides (TMSs), with excellent optical, electrical, and catalytical performance, are of great interest as heterogeneous catalysts. These TMSs-based heterogeneous catalysts have been demonstrated to becapable and adaptable in water purification through advanced oxidation processes. The aim of this review is to conduct an exhaustive analysis and summary of recent progress in the application of TMSs-based AOPs for water decontamination. Firstly, the commonly used tuning strategies for TMSs-based catalysts are concisely introduced, including artificial size and shape control, composition control, doping, and heterostructure manufacturing. Then, a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art progress on TMSs-based AOPs (i.e., Fenton-like oxidation, photocatalytic oxidation, and electro chemical oxidation processes) for wastewater treatment is discussed in detail, with an emphasis on their catalytic performance and involved mechanism. In addition, influencing factors of water chemistry, namely, pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen, inorganic species, and natural organic matter on the catalytic performance of established AOPs are analyzed. Furthermore, the reusability and stability of TMSs-based catalysts in these AOPs are also outlined. Finally, current challenges and future perspectives related to TMSs-based catalysts and their applications for AOPs wastewater treatment are proposed. It is expected that this review would shed some light on the future development of TMSs-based AOPs towards water purification. Copyright © 2021 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
