Activated polymer adsorption for water treatment replacing activated carbons
Author(s): PB Aaditya
Abstract: Idea involves the hypothetical analysis study of the newly stated method for water treatment using activated polymers. The research involves use of the dielectric property and strong structural geometry of single polymer chains which can be activated using high charge density voltage exposure. The polymer size used is typically 10000 times larger than that of the impurities in water and million fold larger than that of the water. By activating the adsorbing sites on the surface of the polymer by charging them with high voltage using ultra capacitors can lead us to a revolutionary step in water treatment. The process of post filtration is also adopted to filter out the used polymer chains/clumps.
