CONTROLLED-RELEASE OXYGEN NANOCOMPOSITE FOR BIOREMEDIATION OF BENZENE CONTAMINATED GROUNDWATER
Mosmeri, H., S. Tasharrofi, E. Alaie, and S.S. Hassani.
New Polymer Nanocomposites for Environmental Remediation. Elsevier, ISBN: 978-0-12-811033-1, Chapter 23:601-622(2018)

The authors investigated the application of a controlled-release oxygen nanocomposite in a permeable reactive barrier configuration for groundwater remediation. Introducing a new class of oxygen-releasing compounds that encapsulate with natural polymers, this chapter discusses the synthesis of slow oxygen-releasing polymer nanocomposites (ORPNCs) as efficient materials for remediation of benzene-contaminated groundwater. ORPNC oxygen-releasing properties and benzene removal potential were studied in batch and continuous experiments.
