Recent Studies from Tsinghua University Add New Data to Nanoparticles (Adsorption of environmental pollutants using magnetic hybrid nanoparticles modified with beta-cyclodextrin)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Fresh data on Nanoparticles are presented in a new report. According to news reporting from Beijing, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Graft through strategy was utilized to coat magnetic Fe3O4 nanoparticles with poly(glycidyl methacrylate) using ordinary radical polymerization and then p-cyclodextrin was linked onto the surface of nanoparticles."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Tsinghua University, "With these nanoparticles modified with cyclodextrin groups, adsorption of two model environmental pollutants, bisphenol A and copper ions, was studied. Host-guest interactions between cyclodextrin and aromatic molecules had a great contribution to the adsorption of bisphenol A, while multiple hydroxyls of cyclodextrin also helped the adsorption of copper ions."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "These magnetic nanopartides could be applied in the elimination, enrichment and detection of some environmental pollutants."
