Phosphate adsorption using hierarchically porous functionalized silica

Huang, W-Y, Li, D., Zhu, Y., Xu, K., Li, J.Q., Han, B.P. and Zhang, Y.M. (2012) Phosphate adsorption using hierarchically porous functionalized silica. In: 5th International Symposium on Functional Materials, 17 - 20 December, Perth, Western Australia



Hierarchically porous functionalized silica material was synthesized with the use of P123 and polystyrene beads. Because of well-defined and interconnecting macro/mesoporous networks, the resulting adsorbent exhibited significantly better phosphate adsorption performance, including adsorption capacity and rate, as compared with the mesoporous adsorbent.
