Abstract:
Chemical engineers of Iran's Babol Noshirvani University of Technology synthesized a nanocomposite by using pyrrole monomers, aniline and basic materials which can be utilized in batch purification methods.

New Nanocomposites Able to Eliminate Industrial Wastewater Pollutants Quickly

Tehran, Iran | Posted on January 14th, 2013

Elimination of color, odor, anions, and cations in only one stage in a very short period of time is among the distinguished characteristics of the synthesized nanocomposite.

In the first place, the researchers synthesized polymeric nanocomposites based on worthless materials such as bran ash. In the second part, they succeeded in using the synthesized nanocomposites in the purification of industrial wastewater.

Elimination of color, odor, anions, and cations in only one stage in a very short period of time (about 30 minutes) is among the distinguished characteristics of the synthesized nanocomposite. Therefore, the application of this project prevents the high costs imposed on various industries for the purification of their wastewater, and in addition, a higher efficiency can be expected. The use of novel adsorbents in purification processes, the use of worthless adsorbents such as bran and bran ash in the structure of nanocomposite, and very high efficiency of the nanocomposites are among other characteristics of these nanocomposites.

Dr. Mohsen Qorbani, the administrator of the plan, stated, "One of the important applications of the project is the purification of wastewater produced by industrial plants. The synthesized polymers, however, have other applications such as anti-corrosive and anti-bacterial properties, but this project only studies their application in wastewater purification. Taking into consideration the presence of numerous plants and the huge challenge they are dealing with about the purification of wastewater, this plan has the required potential to be commercialized."

Results of the research have been published in Composites: Part B, vol. 45, issue 1. For more information about the details of the research, visit the full text of the article on pages 1-7 of the same journal.
