Green Applications of Magnetic Sorbents for Environmental Remediation


Green Applications of Magnetic Sorbents for Environmental Remediation

Tiyasha Kanjilal, Chiranjib Bhattacharjee

Adsorption of both inorganic and organic xenobiotics by utilizing a variety of biomaterials signifies promising prospects for the reduction of environmental pollution. For the purpose of improveing manipulation of the biosorbents, their potential magnetic derivatives have been investigated. These diamagnetic biomaterials of different origin (lignocellulosic material, prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, food wastes, biopolymers etc.) can be magnetically modified in order to acquiring ‘smart’ biomaterial exhibiting a definite response to the external magnetic field. This chapter summarizes the synthesis procedures of magnetic modification and eco-friendly applications of these ‘smart’ biomaterials both in nano and micro-sized forms.
