Fibrous activated carbon has attracted emerging research interests due to its remarkable adsorption performance for volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Though this adsorption behavior for VOCs is closely related to the pore structure on the surface of activated carbon fiber (ACF), few researchers paid attentions to the influence of textural properties of this adsorption process. Especially, cotton-based activated carbon fiber (CACF) for adsorbing benzene pollutant is rarely reported. Herein, in order to develop a high-performance adsorbent for the removal of VOCs pollutants, this work studied the influence of textural properties of CACF on the adsorption of benzene. The results showed that the increase of carbonization temperature would lead to the reduction of mesopores but the increase of micropores for CACF; the embedment of phosphoric acid and its derivatives into the carbon layers contributed to the formation of pore structure for CACF; furthermore, specific surface area of CACF can also be enlarged by increasing the concentration of phosphoric acid. More importantly, it was found that the adsorption capacity of CACF for benzene was strongly dependent on the specific surface area and volume of micropores within CACF because micropores can provide more favorable binding sites. This adsorption process preferred to occur on the wall of micropores, then the accumulated benzene would slowly fill the pores. Interestingly, the decrease of pore size of micropores can unexpectedly improve the affinity of CACF to benzene on the contrary. This work provides a new strategy to develop porous structured ACF materials for the high-performance adsorption of VOCs.

Organic dye-containing wastewater has become an increasingly serious environmental problem due to the rapid development of the printing and dyeing industry. Hydrogel is a promising adsorbent for organic dyes because of its unique three-dimension network structure and versatile functional groups. Though many efforts have been made in hydrogel adsorbents recently, there is still a critical challenge to fabricate hydrogel adsorbent with high adsorption capacity and high efficiency at the same time. To address this concern, we developed a calcium hydroxide nano-spherulites/poly(acrylic acid -[2-(Methacryloxy)ethyl]trimethyl ammonium chloride) hydrogel adsorbent with novel villi-like structure. The hydrogels were prepared through a simple free radical copolymerization method using calcium hydroxide nano-spherulites as crosslinker. The resultant hydrogel adsorbents showed a maximum adsorption capacity of 2249 mg/g in a 400 mg/L methylene blue solution and a high removal ratio of 98% in 1 h for a 50 mg/L methylene blue solution. In addition, the adsorption behaviors of our hydrogel adsorbents could be well described by pseudo-second-order kinetic model and Langmuir adsorption isotherm model. Furthermore, this kind of hydrogel adsorbent showed selective adsorption behavior for methylene blue. Altogether, the hydrogel adsorbent developed in this work has a high capacity and high efficiency in organic dye removing and promised a great potential in wastewater treatment application.

The CuS/RGO composites were prepared using a facile one-step solvothermal method. The asobtained samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman spectra, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Brunner-Emmet-Teller (BET) measurements and UV-Vis spectrophotometry. The results showed that the CuS particles were uniformly dispersed on the surface of RGO and electronic migration effect existed between RGO and CuS. The photocatalytic activity of CuS/RGO composites was evaluated by the degradation of Cationic blue SD-BL, Cationic red X-5GN, Direct blue 86, Reactive blue KN-R, Methylene blue and Rhodamine B under visible light irradiation. The photocatalytic experiments showed that the CuS/RGO composites exhibited a better photocatalytic performance for organic dyes with absence of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) due to the inhibition of recombination of electron-hole pair induced on the surface of CuS. The photodegradation ratio of Cationic blue SD-BL, Cationic red X-5GN, Direct blue 86, Reactive blue KN-R, Methylene blue and Rhodamine B increased to 100%, 95.8%, 99.5%, 87.8%, 100%, 81% after 75 min of irradiation, respectively. Moreover, no significant decline of CuS/RGO photocatalyst for photodegradation of dyes was observed after five cycles, indicating better photostability of the samples. Thus, the CuS/RGO composites could have a promising application in wastewater treatment.
