Study of modified carbonaceous materials with bentonite clays for application in seawater desalination using the capacitive deionization technique (CDI)

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

The project studies the new more stable and efficient nanostructured carbonaceous materials, modified with clays of the bentonite type, to be used as electrodes in capacitive cells that will be applied in a seawater desalination system. To this is added the use of clays from Peru as a material that favors the diffusion processes of ions on the electrode surface at the time of capacitive ion adsorption. The work includes the preparation, physical, chemical and electrochemical characterizations, as well as the evaluation in a laboratory-scale capacitive deionization cell (CDI), in order to evaluate the improvements that the material provides in conventional deionization cells.
