Fast and Efficient Removal of Oil from Water Surface Through Activated Carbon and Iron Oxide-Magnetic Nanocomposite

Abstract

An efficient magnetized nanocomposite material adsorbent is made from agricultural waste like banana stem based activated carbon and combined with iron oxide nanoparticles. The composite adsorbents show excellent lubrication oil absorption capacity with rapid kinetics. Banana stem based activated carbon and composite materials is compared with commercial… (More)
