Magnetic sweet graphene nanosheets: preparation, characterization and application in removal of methylene blue|
Namvari, M. & Namazi, H.
Magnetic glucose-functionalized graphene
nanosheets (GNS) were prepared, and the application of these
biosorbents in the removal of methylene blue was investigated.
Fe3O4 nanoparticles were deposited on sweet GNS using coprecipitation.
The nanocomposites were analyzed by Fourier
transform infrared spectroscopy, field emission scanning electron
microscopy, transition electron microscopy, vibrating
sample magnetometer and X-ray diffraction spectrometry. The
resulted magnetic sweet GNS were superparamagnetic,
responded quickly to an external magnetic field and exhibited
efficient adsorption toward methylene blue, as a cationic dye.
Noleachingwas observed even after aweek of placing amagnet
close to the vial containing the solution ofmagnetic sweet GNS.
