Description

Porous carbon nanospheres prepared using spray pyrolysis were evaluated as adsorbents for removal of arsenate and selenate in de-ionized (DI), canal, and well waters. The carbon nanospheres displayed good binding

Porous carbon nanospheres prepared using spray pyrolysis were evaluated as adsorbents for removal of arsenate and selenate in de-ionized (DI), canal, and well waters. The carbon nanospheres displayed good binding to both metals in DI water and outperformed commercial activated carbons for arsenate removal in pH > 8, likely due to the presence of basic surface functional groups, high surface-to-volume ratio, and suitable micropores formed during the synthesis.
