Abstract

The present study utilized the capability of ambient-temperature plasma in modifying the surface properties of materials to activate the polyethylene terephthalate (PET) fiber surfaces. The effects of different plasma treatment parameters (such as plasma power, treatment time) and grafting parameters (such as grafting temperature, acrylic acid monomer concentration, grafting time) on the activation and grafting of the PET fibers were studied. The feasibility of applying ambient-temperature plasma combined with grafting technology for the preparation of ion exchangers in the heavy metal containing wastewater treatment was evaluated.
