S & R IAU Researcher Treats Water Through Removing Aromatic Pollutants

Wednesday, January 31, 2018 - 13:17

A researcher from Islamic Azad University, Science and Research branch, could find a simple and low cost solution to purify drinking water and remove aromatic pollutants through applying nanotechnology with photocatalytic properties.

According to an ISCA report, ensuring reliable access to clean and affordable water is one of the greatest global challenges of this century. As the world’s population increases, water pollution becomes more complex and difficult to remove, and global climate change threatens to exacerbate water scarcity in many areas, the magnitude of this challenge is rapidly increasing.

The research project executor, Mahsa Bornaei explained that Nanotechnology offers opportunities to develop next-generation water supply systems and this achievement “creating Nano-composite photocatalyst of Fe3O4 magnetic particles with Graphene oxide contaminated with nitrogen to analyze pyrones” will prevent hazardous waste distribution.

As she explained, due to their unique properties, magnetic iron oxide particles were chosen as the base of desired nanocomposite for removing pollutants and synthesized nanocomposite can be used as an appropriate absorbent to absorb, destroy and remove pollutants from aquatic environment.

The study has been carried out by Dr. Kimiagar, Dr. Ahmad Panahi and Dr. Heidarinasab which investigated function of absorbent photocatalyst in decomposing and removing aromatic composition dissolved in aquatic environment.
