Abstract

In this paper, hydrothermal synthesized nano zeolite A has been encapsulated with ethyl bridged periodic mesoporous organosilica(Et-PMO) shell through a simple modified Stober method and an organosilane-directed growth-induced etching strategy, the obtained yolk-shell structured A@Et-PMO nanocomposite(YS-A@Et-PMO) was further functionalized by the impregnation of copper ions, realizing the composite material with hierarchical porous and catalytic properties. The morphology and metal content of the Cu/A and Cu/YS-A@Et-PMO were fully characterized. As compared to the parent material, the composite Cu/YS-A@Et-PMO has an efficient adsorption and catalytic degradation performance on methylene blue(MB), the removal efficiency reached as high as 95% of 60 mg/L MB within 10 min. These novel structured porous composites may have great potential application for the removal of organic dye including waste effluents.
