Gibson LT. Mesosilica materials and organic pollutant adsorption: part B removal from aqueous solution. Chem Soc Rev. 2014;.
This tutorial review will focus on the removal of organic pollutants from the aqueous phase by mesoporous silica. After a brief discussion about mesosilica formation (MCM-41 and SBA-15) and silica surface modification, the review will focus on the use of mesosilica for the removal of (i) organic compounds, (ii) organic dyes, or (iii) pharmaceuticals from aqueous solutions.
