Reductive removal of 2,4-dinitrotoluene and 2,4-dichlorophenol with zero-valent iron-included biochar.


In order to remediate organic contaminants in natural waters and soils, a novel zero-valent iron [Fe(0)]-included biochar was synthesized via slow pyrolysis. 2,4-Dinitrotoluene (DNT) and 2,4-dichlorophenol (DCP) were removed in water via sorption to the Fe(0)-included biochar. Compared to sorption control without Fe(0), the sorbed DNT and DCP were further… (More)
