Efficient Adsorption of the Macronutrients with the Help of Graphene and Oxidized Derivatives

Sustainability icon, disabled. A green leaf.

The project will be dealing with three different types of Graphene and its oxidized nanomaterials, namely Graphene (Gr), Graphene Oxide (GO) and reduced Graphene Oxide (rGO), under different loading conditions of the nutrients namely, Nitrogen (N), Potassium (K) and Phosphorus (P), sometimes referred as the “big 3” in the commercial nano fertilizers for their importance. The overall aim of the project is to check the efficiency of the macro-nutrient getting adsorbed over the Graphene nanomaterials-based platform.
