Antibacterial Melamine Foams Decorated with in Situ Synthesized Silver Nanoparticles.
It is proved that the nanoparticles are stably adhered on the foams, and that their amount can be directly controlled by the concentration of the AgNO3 solution and the dipping time, demonstrating the excellent bactericide performance of the ME/Ag filters.

Abstract Three independent analysis methods were developed to investigate the distribution of solid mass in foams analyzed by X-ray tomography with effective pixel sizes larger than the thickness of…
Facile Oil Removal from Water-in-Oil Stable Emulsions Using PU Foams
The modified foams could reach oil absorption capacities up to 29 g/g, becoming a suitable candidate for water-in-oil stable emulsions separation, and were able to remove oil efficiently from a wide range of emulsion types.
