An Overview of Applying Surfactants to Modified-Functionalized Nanoporous Materials for Metal Ions Sequestration
Keywords:Modified-functionalized nanoporous materials, heavy metal, adsorption.
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.
