New Findings from Y. Jing-po et al Broadens Understanding of Dyes and Pigments

June 17, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- A new study on Dyes and Pigments is now available. According to news reporting from Shijiazhuang, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "A core shell structured nanocomposite for Hg(II) sensing and removal using superparamagnetic Fe3O4 as the core and silica molecular sieve as the shell is reported. A rhodamine derived sensing probe was covalently grafted into the tunnels of the silica molecular sieve."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research, "This core-shell structured nanocomposite was carefully characterized, where its core shell structure was analyzed and confirmed with electron microscopy images, XRD curves, thermogravimetric analysis and N-2 adsorption/desorption isotherms. The sensing performance of the nanocomposite suggested that its emission increased with the increasing Hg(II) concentration, showing emission 'Off-On' effect and high selectivity towards Hg(II). The adsorption and removal performance were also investigated and proved to be promising."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "More importantly, this nanocomposite could be regenerated after usage."
