Today’s commercial fertilizers can cause stress on the environment, particularly stress on aquatic life when certain contaminates leach into the water ways. There are various ways ammonia can enter the aquatic environment, such as runoff from agricultural lands, nitrogenous wastes from animals, and municipal discharges among other things. Current methods of ammonia filtration can be costly, which causes a need for a new method to be developed. The focus of this research is on engineering a novel porous material for the removal of ammonia, which would be suitable for today’s industries. The possible applications of a successful material would be in agricultural situations and municipal discharging.
