Abstract:
The surface modification of porous carbon with polymers has been a subject of
great interest toward advanced applications, such as absorbents, owing to its
combination of physical adsorption with chemical adsorption; they are expected to
provide reasonable adsorption efficiencies. Polymer-based modifications, however,
have rarely been reported so far. The main disadvantages of mesoporous carbonbased
adsorbents are the complicated preparation process and high cost. As a
contrast, a nanocomposite based on activated carbon appears to be of great
scientific and industrial interest. Herein, we review the methods of how to
introduce functional polymers inside activated carbon, while keeping the pore
channels for the adsorption of pollutant molecules. The recent results for poly(N,Ndimethylaminoethyl
methacrylate, PDMAEMA) and poly(methyl methacrylate,
PMMA) functionalization activated carbon were presented. The ability of the
composite material for removing metal ions and organic materials from aqueous
solution was studied, which shows a promising adsorption property. The strategy
developed here is expected to be extended to the design of other functional
polymer-modified activated carbon for the removal of pollutants. The outlook for
potential applications and further challenges is also provided.
