Description

The development of materials for the elimination of target contaminants from our water systems is at a high demand. The purpose of this project is to find an environmentally friendly way of removing these contaminants for the application of in-situ filtration. The use of microporous media for water filtration offers a great number of benefits such as having a highly stable framework. Aside from stability, these materials also have a high BET surface area (Determined by physisorption) that when treated and coated by nanoparticles yield an even higher BET surface area. The higher the surface area is, the more area there is for the target contaminants to attach to
