Polyethyleneimine for copper absorption: kinetics, selectivity and efficiency in artificial seawater

Author affiliations

Abstract

Polyethyleneimine (PEI) is known to bind copper ions effectively and selectively. However, this is the first report on PEI-based materials for copper scavenging from ultra-low concentrations in seawater matrixes. The findings are relevant for water purification and sensing applications as well as extraction of copper from oceans.
