Description

Dendrimers are nanomaterials that are widely studied for a variety of applications because of their distinctive properties. One such property of the generation 2-PAMAM Dendrimer is its specific affinity for copper (II) ions. This could be influential in selective heavy metal extraction, particularly in contaminated water. The research showed the selectivity of the G2-octyl PAMAM dendrimers for copper (II) in a chemical environment with interfering species using Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectroscopy. Such environments that were analyzed includes Andrews University tap water, where magnesium (II) and calcium (II) are present at significant quantities.
