A layered alkali silicate, octosilicate (Na2Si8O17), modified with the controlled amount and ratio of octadecyl and phenyl groups was synthesized to control the spatial distribution of the two functional groups and then achieve the effective and selective adsorption of 4-nonylphenol from aqueous solution. Octosilicates modified with the varied amount and… CONTINUE READING
