Finally, 3D-printed graphene aerogels for water treatment

Posted On: 05/14/21

In a recent study, University at Buffalo engineers report a new process of 3D printing graphene aerogels for water treatment. In tests, the reconfigured aerogel removed certain heavy metals, such as lead and chromium, that plague drinking water systems nationwide. It also removed organic dyes, such as cationic methylene blue and anionic Evans blue, as well as organic solvents like hexane, heptane and toluene.
