Abstract Cu 2 O/crosslinked-chitosan nanocomposites (Cu 2 O/CS NCs) were in situ prepared via a simple one-step liquid phase precipitation–reduction process and characterized by XRD, FT-IR, SEM, TEM, BET, XPS and UV–vis/DRS. The characterization results showed that Cu 2 O/CS NCs were almost similar spherical or ellipsoidal and the surface was rough and porous because Cu 2 O particle was wrapped in chitosan. The chitosan layer was especially favorable for improving the adsorption ability of dye… CONTINUE READING
