Removal of heavy metals from contaminated water
What is it about?
One of the most ill-defined term in water industry is "heavy metal contaminants" and definitions and standards vary by country. But there is general consensus among all that presence of arsenic in drinking water is undesirable and must be removed. There are many adsorbents for As removal.. but magnetically separable stand apart since they are easy to reprocess and recycle. In this paper, my aim was to exploit the 3D mesoporous architecture of vertically standing CNT on graphene substrates for arsenic removal.
Why is it important?
