Example text

Heavy metals usually bind with carboxylic (–COOH), amine (–NH2 ), and thiol (–SH) groups to form protein complexes that modify the protein structure or change their enzymatic catalytic properties, thus resulting in acute toxicity that can cause cell malfunctioning or even death. Even though the traditional methods applied for heavy metal cleanup are time consuming and costly, most industries still use them because there is ample expertise on large-scale wastewater treatment. In order to be used in industrial applications, any adsorbent technology has to offer effective, fast, recyclable, and affordable processes.
