Highly efficient oil-water separators based on dual superhydrophobic and superoleophilic properties of multiwall-carbon nanotube filtration films Academic Article uri icon


  • A new alkyl-pyrene has been synthesized and is used to modify multiwall-carbon nanotube to form films. Our results reveal that the modified MWCNT film prepared here is a promising candidate for use in removal of oils from water.
