Abstract
Short staple microfibers (SSM) based on chitosan (CS) or silk fibroin (SF) were fabricated via the wet-rotate-spinning technique and employed to adsorb hexavalent chromium from aqueous solution. Adsorption efficiencies, physicochemical and morphological properties of CS and SF-SSM were systematically investigated and evaluated before and after adsorption of Cr(VI) using different techniques like ATR-FTIR, TGA, XRD, XPS, and SEM. CS and SF-SSM...
