Abstract: A new approach that combines nanoscale zero-valent iron (nZVI) with electrospinning technology has been put forward to avoid nZVI agglomeration and a secondary pollution. In this study, to enhance the immobilization of nZVI particles onto the polyacrylic acid (PAA) / polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) electrospun nanofiber mat, mats (M1,M2 and M3) with different PAA/PVA mass ratios (1:1, 2:1 and 3:1) were tested for the immobilization of nZVI particles and their performance of removing contaminants. The results indicate …
