Hybrid nanocomposite for aquatic media remediation and respective production method

  • International Patent, WO/2012/087173 A1, 2012


The present invention relates to a polymeric hybrid nanocomposite composed of inorganic nanoparticles dispersed in an organic matrix, for remediation of aquatic media contaminated by anions, such as phosphates, nitrates, sulphates and polyphosphates. The nanocomposite is based on polypropylene grafted with maleic anhydride and aluminium isopropoxide and creates strong (covalent or ionic) chemical bonds between the organic and inorganic components, imparting high mechanical strength associated with indissolubility of the components in the body of water. The hybrid nanocomposite can be applied i ...
