Success in Synthesis of New High Performance Functional Material Mesoporous Prussian Blue

-Improvement of Cesium Adsorption Performance by Increasing Surface Area-

19 Dec, 2011

A research team headed by Dr. Yusuke Yamauchi, MANA Independent Scientist at the NIMS, succeeded in fabricating mesoporous Prussian Blue (PB), in which an extremely large number of nanosized pores (mesoporous) are formed in the crystal structure of the material. In the future, tests of these materials as adsorbents will be conducted and development will be carried out with the aim of simplifying the process. As a result, development approaching practical applications, beginning with application to mass production, is expected.
