In this study, nanoscale Fe(0) was immobilized in and on poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) microspheres by the inverse suspension crosslinked method. Two different sizes of Fe(0)/PVA microspheres were synthesized in the presence and absence of dispersant. The chelating action between Fe(2+) and PVA was identified by Fourier transform infrared and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The morphology and distribution of the obtained Fe(0)/PVA microspheres were characterized by environmental scanning electron… CONTINUE READING
