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 …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
