Sustainability Research - Chemistry and Engineering; Findings from Dalian Polytechnic University Update Understanding of Chemistry and Engineering (Inherent N-doped Honeycomb-like Carbon/fe3o4 Composites With Versatility for Efficient Microwave Absorption and Wastewater Treatment)
By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Engineering -- Investigators publish new report on Sustainability Research - Chemistry and Engineering. According to news reporting originating in Dalian, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "To our knowledge, the utilization of chitosan-derived materials in microwave absorbing is currently scarce. Herein, for the first time, by fully exploiting its potential properties via facile means, chitosan was employed as the exclusive joint source of carbon and nitrogen, and the inherent N-doped honeycomb-like carbon/Fe3O4 composites with favorable versatility that can efficiently treat microwave interference and even wastewater pollution were controllably prepared."
Financial supporters for this research include National Key R&D Program of China, National Natural Science Foundation of China, State Key Laboratory of Bio-Fibers and Eco-Textiles, Innovative Talents in Liaoning Universities and Colleges.
The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Dalian Polytechnic University, "The optimal microwave absorbency is attractive, of which the minimum reflecting loss reaches to -59.5 dB, and the maximum effective absorbing bandwidth is 5.36 GHz when filler content is only 10%. Beyond the major trying, another function for wastewater treatment was also demonstrated by excellent toxic Cr(VI) adsorption and peroxymonosulfate activation for organic pollutants (azo-dye Orange II) degradation. More significantly, the embedding magnetic component makes it convenient to be magnetically separated from the testing solution."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Totally, these N-doped honeycomb-like carbon/Fe3O4 composites with versatility prepared by simple methods not only open a new road for the diversified utilization of chitosan but also would possibly make a referrable guidance to the design or even synthesis for superior microwave absorption and environmental remediating materials."
