Separation and Sequential Recovery of Tetracycline and Cu(II) from Water Using Reusable Thermoresponsive Chitosan-Based Flocculant.

Coexistence of antibiotics and heavy metals is typically detected in water containing both organic and inorganic contaminants. In this work, a flocculation method using a reusable thermoresponsive chitosan-based flocculant (CS-g-PNNPAM) was applied for separation and sequential recovery of tetracycline (TC) and Cu(II) from water. High synergistic removal… CONTINUE READING
