Flower stamen-like porous boron carbon nitride nanoscrolls for water cleaning

Abstract

With the development of the textile industry, commercial organic dyes in waste water are posing as serious issues. Recently, nanomaterials such as porous nanosheets have proven to be efficient in adsorbing the dyes from waste water. However, it still remains a challenge to develop novel nanomaterials as effective absorbents for water cleaning. Herein, we report novel flower stamen-like porous boron carbon nitride (BCN) nanoscrolls for water cleaning. The porous BCN nanoscrolls with a high surface area of 890 m2 g−1 display excellent dye adsorption performances up to the adsorption capacity of 620 mg g−1 of Congo red and 250 mg g−1 of methylene blue, which have a great potential value for water cleaning applications.
