Research on Adsorption Material for Organic Solvent Floating on the Water
Based on short of effective disposal measure for organic solvent leakage, this paper developed a kind of styrene-divinybenzene copolymer that can absorb massive organic solvent such as benzene on the water, and it contains a great deal of benzene ring, has good hydrophobic and lipophilic property, what’s more, it has lower density than water and thus floating on the water before and after adsorption, easily separating from water, so it is a kind of perfect adsorption material of organic solvent like benzene at leakage case on the river. Besides, this paper discussed synthesis temperature, feeding proportion and water containing, obtaining optimal synthesis conditions, so max. adsorption amount for benzene on the water can be reached 25mg/l at this optimal conditions.
