Summary of "A novel robust adsorbent for efficient oil/water separation: Magnetic carbon nanospheres/graphene composite aerogel."

Recently, graphene aerogels (GAs) have attracted considerable research attention in oil/water separation owing to their remarkable properties. However, the serious stacking of graphene oxide nanosheets (GO) would lead to low adsorption capacity and poor recyclability. For the first time, with alkaline ammonium citrate as reducing agent and nitrogen source, the point-to-face contact between magnetic carbon nanospheres (MCNS) and graphene sheets was adopted to effectively inhibit the aggregation of graphene sheets. Nitrogen-doped magnetic carbon nanospheres/graphene composite aerogels (MCNS/NGA) were fabricated under weakly alkaline conditions by one-step hydrothermal in-situ electrostatic self-assembling strategy. The aerogels have low density, super-elasticity (up to 95 % compression), high specific surface area (787.92 m g) and good magnetic properties. Therefore, they exhibit adsorption capacity in the range of 187-537 g g towards various organic solvents and oils, superior to most reported materials to date. In addition, thanks to their good mechanical properties, excellent thermal stability and flame retardancy, they can be regenerated by squeezing, distillation and combustion. More importantly, magnetic control technology can be adopted to realize oriented adsorption and facilitate recycling of organic solvents and oils in extreme environments.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A highly-sensitive (in the picomolar range, which is 10,000-fold more sensitive than conventional electrophoresis) and efficient technique that allows separation of PROTEINS; NUCLEIC ACIDS; and CARBOHYDRATES. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

Water naturally or artificially infused with CARBON DIOXIDE.

The separation of individuals or groups resulting in the lack of or minimizing of social contact and/or communication. This separation may be accomplished by physical separation, by social barriers and by psychological mechanisms. In the latter, there may be interaction but no real communication.

The separation of particles from a suspension by passage through a filter with very fine pores. In ultrafiltration the separation is accomplished by convective transport; in DIALYSIS separation relies instead upon differential diffusion. Ultrafiltration occurs naturally and is a laboratory procedure. Artificial ultrafiltration of the blood is referred to as HEMOFILTRATION or HEMODIAFILTRATION (if combined with HEMODIALYSIS).

Unsaturated derivatives of the ESTRANES with methyl groups at carbon-13, with no carbon at carbon-10, and with no more than one carbon at carbon-17. They must contain one or more double bonds.
