We report an ingenious technique to prepare magnetic alkaline lignin-dopamine nanoparticles (AL-DA/FeO NPs). Alkaline lignin, a kind of abundant waste from agriculture, pulping and bio-energy industry, was functionalized by the conjugation with DA molecules and nano-precipitation method. Benefiting from the three-dimensional network of lignin and mussel-inspired DA molecules, chromium(III) can be effectively removed by physisorption and chemisorption. The maximum Cr(III) adsorption capacity of AL-DA/FeO NPs was found to be 44.56 mg/g, which was among the highest of previously reported biomass-based Cr(III) adsorbents. Moreover, sensitive magnetic responsiveness (24.6 emu/g) of AL-DA/FeO NPs can be more helpful in recycling (over 90% recycled within 2 min) and multiple reusing. The preparation of this low-cost, high adsorptive capacity and good ecofriendly lignin-based nano-adsorbent is expected to become a sustainable technology to simultaneously achieve the wastewater reutilization from pulping and bio-energy industry and purification of other modern industries.

Nanometer-sized particles that are nanoscale in three dimensions. They include nanocrystaline materials; NANOCAPSULES; METAL NANOPARTICLES; DENDRIMERS, and QUANTUM DOTS. The uses of nanoparticles include DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEMS and cancer targeting and imaging.
The most abundant natural aromatic organic polymer found in all vascular plants. Lignin together with cellulose and hemicellulose are the major cell wall components of the fibers of all wood and grass species. Lignin is composed of coniferyl, p-coumaryl, and sinapyl alcohols in varying ratios in different plant species. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)
A species of mussel in the genus MYTILUS, family MYTILIDAE, class BIVALVIA, known as the common mussel. It has a bluish-black shell and is highly edible.
A copper-containing oxidoreductase enzyme that catalyzes the oxidation of 4-benzenediol to 4-benzosemiquinone. It also has activity towards a variety of O-quinols and P-quinols. It primarily found in FUNGI and is involved in LIGNIN degradation, pigment biosynthesis and detoxification of lignin-derived products.
