Abstract

Electrospun nanofiber membranes surface functionalized with 3D nanolayers through ATRP provide adsorption capacities over 50-times higher than current commercial membrane adsorption systems and over 12-times higher than packed bed resins; additionally, the adsorption kinetics remain 10-times faster than packed bed resins and have over 15-times higher permeance.
