Pickering emulsion-based synthesis of lignocellulose aerogels as adsorbents for pharmaceutical pollutants

Projektinformation

Beskrivning

The key idea of the PickPollutants project is to exploit lignin nanoparticles (LNPs) and lignocellulose nanofibrils (LCNFs) in stabilizing oil-in-water Pickering emulsions, which will serve as templates for the synthesis of LNP- functionalized aerogels supported by a network of LCNFs. The network structure of the aerogel, including the LCNFs and the LNPs, will be strengthened by covalent crosslinking using a lignocellulose acting enzymes laccase. The specially designed lignocellulose aerogel is envisioned to be a versatile adsorbent capable of PICKing a wide array of pharmaceutical POLLUTANTS from wastewater.
