Abstract

The progressive growth of world population and industrialization have caused numerous emerging problems, e.g., environmental pollution, that threaten human health and life quality. Pollutants removal from air, soil and wastewater has become an important objective to be accomplished by innovative nanomaterials able to remove dyes, metals, and so on [1]. Conducting polymers, as polyaniline and polypyrrole, have attracted a huge interest owing to their peculiar properties which make them valid substitutes of conventional materials in different fields. These compounds are generally synthesized following old polluting processes. Inspired by our long-standing experience in catalysis [2], we have recently addressed our efforts to find novel “green” approaches to produce them [3] and extend their application in the environmental field. Herein, we report our recent achievements in the VOCs monitoring and removal from air, as well as in chromium and dyes removal from wastewater. In both cases nanoporous polyanilines, produced either by traditional or clean protocols, have been employed as the sorbent supports. The best materials were subjected to easy regeneration processes and, once reused, they were found to retain their original high performances. [1] G. Z. Kyzas, K. A. Matis, J. Mol.
