Rational Synthesis of Imprinted Organofunctional Sol-Gel Materials for Toxic Metal Separation [report]

Ziling Xue, Sheng Dai, Craig E Barnes
1999 unpublished
Project Productivity Good productivity was achieved in this project as evidenced by the record of publications, presentations, and training of graduate and undergraduate students who are potential future work force in environmental science and engineering in the U.S. Several more papers are being drafted and we plan to submit them shortly. This EMSP project, which has been focused on toxic metal Cu 2+ -imprinted hybrid sol-gels, clearly established the imprinting principle and scientific basis,
more » ... as well as the potentials of these imprinted organofunctional materials for toxic metal separation. Future work will be needed to realize bench scale processes for the use of these new sol-gel sorbents.
