Abstract

This paper presents an application of surfactants extended to environmental remediation. The promising process related to the use of surfactants for heavy metal sequestration purpose named "modified-functionalized nanoporous materials" is summarized in this work. The unique characteristic of high selective of the functional groups and large surface area of nanoporous support makes this material becomes a powerful tool for sequestration of target metals. The strength of this adsorbent is fast sorption kinetic, high thermal and chemical stability, easy handling, and the ability to regenerate.
