Abstract

Various nanomaterials have been established as versatile adsorbents for the removal of organic or heavy metal pollutants from wastewater. Unfortunately, the subsequent cleaning of the suspended nano-adsorbents is very difficult and costly. Herein, we report a novel synthetic route to fabricate fibrous-shaped CuO@CuS nanoporous structures by the laser irradiation of CuO powders in sodium sulfide (Na2S) liquid. Superior to conventional chemical approaches, 532 nm laser beam irradiation will lead to the formation of rich- O and S vacancy defect states in the final products. Zeta-potential experiments confirm that the positive surface charges of CuO@CuS nanomaterials significantly increase from 2 to 70 mV with an increase of laser irradiation time (0~30 min). As for the methyl blue (MB) and hexavalent chromium Cr(VI) solution, the CuO@CuS nanocomposites adsorbed with these adsorbates can be significantly self-agglomerated, due to the positive electrostatic adsorption effect on negatively charged pollutants. After the adsorption of MB molecules and Cr(IV) ions, the absorption spectra of two supernatant liquids confirm that 99.6% and 98.9% CuO@CuS nano-adsorbents can be deposited on the bottom of the pool, respectively. Without the aid of the centrifugation process or an external magnetic field in complicated nano-adsorbent separation procedures, the unique adsorption-deposition process is a significant breakthrough in the wastewater purification.
