Hierarchical functionalized MCM-22 zeolite for trapping tobacco specific nitrosamines (TSNAs) in solution.

To enable zeolite to trap bulky environment pollutants such as tobacco specific nitrosamines (TSNAs), we tailored the porous structure of MCM-22 zeolite by desilication to obtain a sample with mesopores centered 3.5 nm, in order to promote the mass transport. The meso-MCM-22 was further functionalized with -SO(3)H group to enhance the efficiency in… CONTINUE READING
