In this study, environmentally-friendly nanocomposite hydrogels were fabricated. These hydrogels consisted of semi-interpenetrating networks of carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) molecules grafted to polyacrylic acid (PAA), as an eco-friendly and non-toxic polymer with numerous carboxyl and hydroxyl functional groups, which were reinforced with different levels of graphene oxide particles (0.5, 1.5 or 3% wt). Field-emission electron scanning microscopy (FESEM) images indicated that the pore size of the nanocomposites decreased with increasing graphic oxide concentration. The presence of the graphic oxide increased the storage modulus and thermal stability of the nanocomposite hydrogels. The hydrogels had an adsorption capacity of 138 mg/g of a model cationic dye pollutant (methylene blue) after 250 min. Moreover, a reusability test showed that the adsorption capacity remained at around 90% after 9 cycles. Density functional theory (DFT) simulations suggested that the adsorption of methylene blue was mainly a result of π-π bonds, hydrogen bonds, and electrostatic interactions with graphene oxide. Our results indicated that the nanocomposite hydrogels fabricated in this study may be eco-friendly, stable, efficient, and reusable adsorbents for ionic pollutants in wastewater treatment.

Herein, polyaniline (PANI) with tuning morphology was in-situ synthesized within bacterial cellulose (BC)/silver nanoparticles hydrogels (AgNPs) that were prepared by green hydrothermal reduction method in different molarity of 0.01 and 0.25 of HCl solution along with the presence of polyethylene glycol (PEG). The synthesis of PANI in the presence of PEG in 0.01 M HCl led to the formation of rose-like morphology within nanocomposite aerogels with a size of 1.5-5.2 µm. All aerogels had the porosity and shrinkage of higher than 80% and lower than 10%, respectively. Rheology results showed a higher value of storage modulus (G') than that of loss modulus (G″) for all samples over the whole frequency regime. It confirmed by the loss factor (tan δ) value of less than 1 for all hydrogel samples. The synthesis of PANI within BC/Ag in 0.25 M of HCl solution resulted in a substantial rise of G' to nearly 1.5 × 104 Pa that was one order of magnitude higher than that of other hydrogels. However, the synthesis condition of PANI did not influence the antibacterial activity. In spite of unfavorable cell attachment onto nanocomposite aerogels, the cell proliferation increased steadily over the whole period of incubation.
