- ... Phytic acid (PA) induced graphene macrostructures were synthesized and investigated for the sorption characteristics and mechanisms of mercury. The as-synthesized graphene foam possessed large specific surface area and amphiphilicity. FTIR and XPS analysis revealed that the as-prepared graphene macrostructure retained oxygen-containing functional groups after hydrothermal reduction and also captur ...
