ITCP 05-2023 Bachelor- / Master Thesis: Functional polymer materials for metal ion filtration from water


In a time of resource shortage, it is crucial to seize every possible source, especially in regards of metals and rare earth metals since they are existential for most communication, mobility and manufacturing infrastructure. However, tapping new sources besides commercial mining methods requires innovative methods that are yet to be developed. Ground water, ocean water and even waste water hold great potential as sources for metals, therefore this project deals with the development of new chemistries and their application in functional materials for the filtration of metal ions from water.
