This paper presents the adsorption of humic acid from aqueous solution onto crosslinked chitosan derivative (carboxymethylchitosan), formed by additionless irradiation technique. The surface charge and swelling properties of crosslinked samples were investigated. The adsorption of humic acid onto crosslinked carboxymethylchitosan was carried out by the(More)
The functionalized graphene (GNS(PF6)) was fabricated by simple and fast method of electrolysis with potassium hexafluorophosphate solution as electrolyte under the static potential of 15 V. The characterization results of transmission electron microscopy, atom force microscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, X-ray powder diffraction, Raman spectroscopy(More)
In this paper, marine brown algae Laminaria japonica was chemically modified by crosslinking with epichlorohydrin (EC(1) and EC(2)), or oxidizing by potassium permanganate (PC), or crosslinking with glutaraldehyde (GA), or only washed by distilled water (DW). They were used for equilibrium sorption uptake studies with Cd(2+), Cu(2+), Ni(2+) and Zn(2+). The(More)
This study investigates green tea extract synthesized conditions impacting on the reactivity of iron nanoparticles (Fe NPs) used for the degradation of malachite green (MG), including the volume ratio of Fe(2+) and tea extract, the solution pH and temperature. Results indicated that the reactivity of Fe NPs increased with higher temperature, but fell with(More)
We present a surfactant-assisted solvothermal approach for the controllable synthesis of a PbS nanocrystal at low temperature (85 degrees C). Nanotubes (400 nm in length with an outer diameter of 30 nm), bundle-like long nanorods (about 5-15 mum long and an average diameter of 100 nm), nanowires (5-20 mum in length and with a diameter of 20-50 nm), short(More)
Selective extraction-separation of yttrium(III) from heavy lanthanides into 1-octyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate ([C(8)mim][PF(6)]) containing Cyanex 923 was achieved by adding a water-soluble complexing agent (EDTA) to aqueous phase. The simple and environmentally benign complexing method was proved to be an effective strategy for enhancing the(More)
A new material (IL923SGs) composed of ionic liquids and trialkyl phosphine oxides (Cyanex 923) for Y(III) uptake was prepared via a sol-gel method. The hydrophobic ionic liquid 1-octyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate (C8mim+ PF6(-)) was used as solvent medium and pore templating material. The extraction of Y(III) by IL923SGs was mainly due to the(More)
Micellar-enhanced ultrafiltration (MEUF) was used to remove phenol from simulant aqueous solutions. The effect of groups difference of cationic surfactant on the solubilization of phenol was investigated through orthogonal experiment, namely, surfactants with the same length of hydrocarbon chain but different hydrophilic head group and vice versa. The(More)
A catalyst system composed of peroxophosphomolybdates as catalytic center and agarose as matrix material had been designed. The [C16H33N(CH3)3]3[PO4{MoO(O2)2}4]/agarose (C16PMo(O2)2/agarose) hybrid was found to be active for oxidation desulfurization (ODS) of dibenzothiophene (DBT) or real fuel into corresponding sulfone by H2O2 as an oxidant, while the(More)
Hypochlorite (ClO-) is one of the most important reactive oxygen species (ROS), which plays an important role in sustaining human innate immunity during microbial invasion. Moreover, ClO- is a powerful oxidizer for water treatment. The safety of drinking water is closely related to its content. Herein, m-phenylenediamine (mPD) is used as a precursor to(More)
