A comprehensive experimental and theoretical study on BN nanosheets for the adsorption of pharmaceutical drugs
BN nanomaterials have revolutionized the scientific world with their outstanding physiochemical properties leading to far-fetched applicability in the field of adsorption. In this context, present investigation deals with the synthesis and characterization of BN nanosheets and applicability for the adsorption of pharmaceutical drugs. BN nanosheets exhibited excellent adsorption for Levofloxacin, Tetracycline and Curcumin. To get further insights into the feasibility of adsorption of drugs over BN nanosheets and to scrutinize the interactions between the two, computations have been performed within DFT formalism. The theoretical investigations unveiled the presence of hydrogen bonding and negative adsorption energies liable for favorable adsorption. The synthesized BN nanosheets being biocompatible proved to be proficient adsorbents for the sustainability of environment.
