Abstract

With the fast development of industrial and human activity, large amounts of persistent organic pollutants, heavy metal ions and radionuclides are released into the natural environment, which results in environmental pollution. The efficient elimination of the natural environment is crucial for...

Abstract

The increasing anthropogenic pressure results in environmental pollution and thus adversely affects the integrity of ecosystems. Consequently, various methods of removing pollutants from effluents have been developed and used to minimise this negative impact, with adsorption on clay minerals...

Abstract

Microplastic (MP) pollution has become an area of increasing concern because MPs accumulate various types of pollutants. Many previous studies have explored the interactions between MPs and hydrophobic pollutants. However, little research has been conducted on hydrophilic pollutants, which are of...

Abstract

Microplastics and endocrine disruptors (EDs) are contaminants of emerging concerns and ubiquitously present in aquatic ecosystems, establishing interactions that still are the subject of investigation due to their implications in the cotransport of pollutants. Then, we conducted mechanistic studies ...

Abstract

Among environmental remediation technologies, iron-manganese oxides were employed as a material to prevent environmental pollution basing on its high specific surface area and strong adsorption capacity. In recent years, iron-manganese oxide composite has been combined with graphene, zeolite,...

Abstract

With the development of carbon-based nanomaterials, carbon dots (CDs) have recently received increasing attention owing to their unique optical properties, low toxicity, facile synthesis, abundance and inexpensive precursors. Along with the demonstrated applications in bioimaging, photocatalysis,...

Abstract

In recent years, the application of green rusts (GRs) for water purification has received significant attention, but its full understanding has not been well achieved. Then, the comprehension about the synthesis and characteristics of GRs can highly favor their decontamination performances for the...

Abstract

In recent years, microplastic pollution in the environment has attracted attention worldwide. The large specific surface area and strong adsorption capacity of microplastics lead to interactions with typical environmental contaminants (such as organic pollutants and heavy metals), thereby changing...

Abstract

As one of porous metal-organic frameworks, zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs) are typical crystalline materials with tetrahedral clusters such as ZnN4 and CoN4 linked by imidazolate ligands. Due to facile synthesis, regulated nanostructures and tunable pore sizes, various ZIFs have been...
