The magnetic titanate nanotube (Fe(3)O(4)-TN composite) was prepared and functionalized with C(18) groups and then coated by a hydrophilic alginate polymer cage. This material (ALG@C(18)-Fe(3)O(4)-TN) exhibited the properties of large surface area, superparamagnetism, high adsorption ability, and good dispersibility in water. ALG@C(18)-Fe(3)O(4)-TNs… CONTINUE READING
