Carbon-stabilized iron nanoparticles for environmental remediation
Ferromagnetic carbon-coated Fe nanoparticles (core size of 15 nm, saturated magnetization of Ms = 218 emu g-1 and coercivity of Hc = 62 Oe), fabricated at a mild temperature, demonstrate a strong ability to effectively remove more than 95 wt% of Cr(vi) in waste water via carbon shell physical adsorption, which is much higher than the commercially available Fe NPs. © 2010 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
