Her research focuses on the adsorption of heavy metal ions onto nano-materials and regeneration of nano-absorbents. Impacting mechanisms of ionic strength and humic acid on competitive adsorption were thoroughly studied. The desorbed titanate nanotubes (TNTs) were regenerated at ambient temperature using 2% of the NaOH needed for virgin TNTs preparation at 130 °C, and displayed high adsorption capacity even after six recycles. The regeneration mechanism was stated based on changes of TNTs’ morphology and composition after adsorption, desorption and regeneration, which promoted the development of nanomaterial regeneration.
