Functionalized low-cost graphene sponge electrodes for sustainable water treatment and complete defluorination of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) FOCUS4PFAS

Objective

The presence of toxic, carcinogenic and bioaccumulative per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in our water cycle is one of the major challenges that the humanity is facing in the 21st century, and there are no established (waste)water treatment technologies capable of their degradation. Here, we will address this challenge by developing low-cost graphene sponge electrodes tailored to achieve efficient electrosorption/adsorption and subsequent electrochemical degradation of PFAS. Emphasis will be placed on the removal and degradation of more polar, shorter-chain (e.g.
