Surface functionalized hydrophobic porous particles toward water treatment application

Journal Article

A microfluidic-based approach for the fabrication of organic contaminants absorbing core-shell particles is demonstrated. The hydrophobic porous core absorbs oil while the hydrophilic surface enables the particles to be well-dispersed in aqueous solutions. These particles can uptake oil from aqueous solution saturated with oil or via direct contact with oil blobs as depicted in the figure. Copyright © 2013 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
