CHAPTER 12

Fast and Efficient Removal of Existing and Emerging Environmental Contaminants by 3D Graphene-based Adsorbents

Integration of 2D graphene sheets into 3D graphene-based macrostructures (3D GBMs) could solve the separation challenges that preclude the wide application of graphene-based adsorbents. Apart from the inherent exceptional properties of the building blocks, the 3D GBMs also exhibit unique collective properties such as compressibility and interconnected porous structure. Owing to their novel collective properties, the application of 3D GBMs as adsorbents to remove various pollutants from water and air has attracted tremendous attention. The present chapter provides an overview of recent research studies and advances regarding the use of 3D GBMs as promising adsorbents for water treatment and air purification.
