Abstract null null In order to eliminate multiple coexisting pollutants in environmental wastewater, a magnetic three-dimensional hierarchical porous flower-like N, Co-doped graphitic carbon nano-polyhedra decorated NiCo-layered double oxides (N-Co@C/NiCo-LDOs) adsorption material was synthesized, which consisted of two-dimensional LDOs nanosheets with functionalized surfaces (N, Co-doped graphitic carbon loaded on both sides of NiCo-LDOs nanosheets). The adsorption properties of N-Co@C/NiCo-LDOs for five types of typical pollutants (cationic dyes: rhodamine b, methylene blue; pesticides: ethofenprox, bifenthrin; anionic dyes: methyl orange, congo red; inorganic cations: Cr2+, Cd2+, Pb2+, Zn2+, inorganic anions: Cr2O72-, AsO33-) were investigated systematically in single and coexisting systems. Combined with the results of FTIR and zeta potential, the adsorption mechanism was discussed. By virtue of its hierarchical porous architecture and the combined effect of functionalized surfaces and LODs supporter, the as-prepared N-Co@C/NiCo-LDOs demonstrates excellent adsorption performance towards five types of typical pollutants with fast adsorption rate, high adsorption capacity and good co-adsorption performance. More importantly, the N-Co@C/NiCo-LDOs showed satisfactory removal efficiency, stability and reusability in model wastewater. The broad-spectrum, rapid, easily separable, and reusable adsorption properties make N-Co@C/NiCo-LDOs promising for highly efficient wastewater treatments. This work also provides a feasible way for the preparation of adsorption materials for the treatment of complex wastewater systems.

Abstract Supercapacitors are deemed as reliable power sources for portable devices and electric vehicles. Electrode materials with high energy and power densities are greatly needed. Herein, we designed reduced-graphene-oxide supported nickel-cobalt layered double hydroxide nanosheets (NiCo-LDH/rGO) as electrode materials. The introduction of graphene could largely enhance the conductivity, and the supported NiCo-LDH could effectively prevent graphene from self-aggregation. Thanks to the synergi...

Abstract A mesoporous Ni-C-N/Silica aerogel (Ni-C-N/SA) was prepared by impregnation of the cationic [Ni(tepa)]2+ complex onto a negatively charged silica aerogel support followed by suitable thermal treatment. And Ni-C-N/SA was applied as an adsorbent for selective adsorption of methylene blue (MB). When [Ni(tepa)]2+ loading is 20% and thermal treatment temperature is 400 °C (denoted “NiT20-400/SA”), the adsorption of MB by NiT20-400/SA is 54 mg/g, which is three times that of raw silica aeroge...

Abstract NiO nanospheres and NiO nanospheres deposited on rGO nanosheets i.e., rGO-NiO nanocomposites have been synthesized using in-situ solvothermal method. The crystal structures, phases, and morphologies of the synthesized samples have been confirmed by XRD, Raman, and TEM measurements. The detailed information regarding chemical bonding, identification of the constituent elements and their binding chemical states in the synthesized nanocomposites were revealed using FT-IR, EDX and XPS measu...

Abstract The serious problem from pollution of metal ions placed great pressure to global water ecosystem and human beings. Herein, a synergistic photocatalytic-photothermal system of integrated membrane for the removal and reutilization of aqueous Ag+ ions was designed. The crystal of zeolitic imidazolate frameworks-67 (ZIF-67) stably grew on the graphene oxide (GO) membrane with the uniform distribution. In the ZIF-67/GO membrane, the adsorption and photo-reduction of Ag+ ions on ZIF-67 crysta...

Abstract Heavy metals and pesticides often coexist in contaminated water, while their potential competition behaviors make the adsorptive removal more challenging. Thus, decorating an adsorbent with independent functional sites could be a promising alternative to radically prevent the competitive process for improving the adsorption performance. Herein, β-cyclodextrin functionalized rice husk-based cellulose (β-CD@RH-C) was designed and applied for synchronous removal of atrazine and Pb(II). The...

Abstract Composites of few-layer transition metal oxides and graphene nanosheets with strong interfacial connection hold great promise as high-performance anodes for lithium-ion batteries, but it is highly challenging to realize full interfacial properties. Herein, we report an ultra-refined layer-by-layer mesoporous CoO/reduced graphene oxide (CoO/RGO) architecture synthesized via a facile method. The CoO/RGO has stacked interfaces between the CoO nanosheets and the graphene nanosheets via Co–O...

Abstract Zeolitic imidazolate framework (ZIF)-derived carbons have been considered promising catalysts for the degradation of organics in water through peroxymonosulfate (PMS)-based oxidation processes. The construction of hierarchical hollow, porous structures while retaining the properties of ZIF-derived carbons is highly desirable for a catalyst but remains an arduous challenge. Herein, ZIF-67 (Co(mim)2, mim=2-methylimidazolate) derived carbon with hollow, porous structures is achieved by pyr...

A facile one-pot surfactant-free solvothermal method was developed to synthesize ZIF-67@Co-Ni layered double hydroxides (LDHs) heterostructures. By rationally controlling the sequential growth of ZIF-67 and re-precipitation process of 2-MeIM-inserted Co-Ni LDHs, a series of heterogeneous ZIF-67@Co-Ni LDHs polyhedral with controllable void space and final hollow Co-Ni LDHs polyhedrons were obtained through in-situ transformation. Typical core-shelled ZIF-67@Co-Ni LDHs, yolk-shelled ZIF-67@Co-Ni L...

Abstract Urea formaldehyde (UF) was grafted onto the backbone of alginate to prepare microbeads as an adsorbent for the removal of heavy metal ions from aqueous solutions. The expensive alginate was crosslinked with cheaper UF at different ratios (1: 2.5∼1: 12.5) to produce sturdy alginate-UF beads at lower cost. Characterization results showed that UF modification enhanced the pore network and structural stability of the beads, which can be attributed to the reduced intermolecular forces and pl...

Abstract In this paper, we report a new type of 3D ZIF-8@NiAl-LDHs micro-flowers material consisting of sandwich-like structured 2D nanopetals (highly compact ZIF-8 film anchored on both sides of petals). ZIF-8 was successfully incorporated into NiAl-LDHs (ZIF-8@NiAl-LDHs) via seeding strategy directed growth of ZIFs on the surface of LDHs nanopetals. The coating of ZIF-8 significantly increased the adsorption ability to organic pollutants and inorganic cation. 3D ZIF-8@NiAl-LDHs with excellent ...
