Abstract: Today’s industrial and sewage wastewater pose a serious environmental problem and pollute water bodies and soil very badly which affects the flora and fauna of Ecosystem. It is basic need to know the concentration of organic and toxic heavy metals moieties in wastewater before it leaving into the big soil and water bodies. The wastewater generated industrial areas is complex in nature because of the variability in the process system producing organic and inorganic moieties in the wastewater. These industries create water pollution by discharging the wastewater containing large number of organics and other color causing compounds. Hence is needful and area of interest is detection and identification of wastewater components. This investigation focuses on the detection of organic moieties present in the soil and industrial or sewage wastewater by well-developed technique FTIR and GC-MS which can detect the organic concentration up to 0.01 mg present in the wastewater. The same sample were characterized by FTIR which shows the different IR frequencies of organic. The present extraction technique was employed for the extraction of organic by gas chromatography and mass spectroscopy GC-MS technique.
