Polymeric matrices based on functionalised cyclodextrins for water decontamination

Objective

This proposal involves the synthesis of polymeric matrices based on functionalised cyclodextrins which may be used for the removal of toxic heavy metal ions from water. Existing methods for the removal of such pollutants are inadequate since the materials used are either toxic, no-biodegradable or unselective. The polymers to be synthesised will be non-toxic, recyclable and action selective. The properties of these polymers will be fully investigated. The expected outcome is acceptable materials for water decontamination.
