Preparation and Characterization of Plaster Kiln Dust-Fe3O4 Magnetic Nanoparticles
Keywords:Fe3O4, plaster kiln dust, nanoparticles, magnetic plaster kiln dust, and nanocomposite
Magnetic plaster kiln dust (MPKD) was synthesized as a unique, low-cost composite reused of byproduct plaster kiln dust (PKD), which is considered a source of air pollution. The FESEM, EDS, XRD, FTIR, VSM, and BET tests were used to characterize the MPKD. The characterization revealed that the MPKD was nanotubes non-agglomerated and super-paramagnetic with a high specific surface area (102.7 m2/g). Compared with the specific area of other materials (composites), the MPKD could be considered a promising substance in the field of water/wastewater treatment.
