S & R IAU Researcher Creates Nanoparticle Removing Carcinogens from Water

Saturday, December 30, 2017 - 11:10

A researcher from Islamic Azad University, Science and Research branch, has made a new nanoparticle which removes pollutants from drinking water.

According to an ISCA report, Shahin Hatami Shahrab explained that due to the frequency and severity of oil spills to the underground water wells, people in some provinces have suffered from various illnesses including cancer. This research shows that aromatic compounds is a factor which is the source of these diseases, therefore the researchers made an effort to solve this problem.

Hatami stated that PH of the photocatalyst, various Optical Spectrum, as well as the hardness of water were investigated in this research, “in an optimal stage and under the visible light, we succeeded to remove pollutants up to 85%.”

As the researcher noted, the way of combining materials in making this composite was completely new and innovative.
