Synthesis and Preparation of Hydrophobic CNTs-Coated Melamine Formaldehyde Foam by Green and Simple Method for Efficient Oil/Water Separation

Hydrophobic porous polymeric materials have attracted great interests recently as potential candicate for oil-water separation due to their high selectivity and sorption capacity. Herein, we present a green, simple and cost-effective method to change hydrophilic melamine formaldehyde (MF) foam to hydrophobic carbon nanotubes (CNTs) coated MF foam through an immersion process.
