Adsorber supraparticles for purification and sensing

 

Icon: Adsorber for purification and sensingWe aim at designing supraparticles which can be added to fluids and interact specifically with target ions or molecules in these fluids. The ultimate goal is either an adsorption of the target substance onto the particle`s surface, or an interaction of the target substance with the building blocks of the supraparticles. As a result, as the particles typically also possess magnetic properties, target substances can either be removed and recovered from the fluid with the help of the supraparticles, or the supraparticles act as detectors and indicate the presence and concentration of the target substance.
