Development of ligand-based nanocoatings that, when bonded to the surface of high surface area, low-cost substrates, can transform those substrates, through surface functionalization chemistry, into a high-capacity, target-specific adsorptive media capable of sequestering high concentrations of heavy metal contaminants. These monofunctional ...
