PAMAM dendrimer for mitigating humic foulant

Author affiliations


Poly(amidoamine) (PAMAM) dendrimers have been established as efficient ligands for the removal of humic acid (HA) foulant, based upon electrostatic and hydrophobic interactions, as well as hydrogen bonding. This proof-of-concept study indicates the broad utility of dendritic nanotechnology for water treatment and environmental applications.
