Nano size (<100 nm) pollutants have been controlled negligibly in traditional air pollution control devices. Phosphor particulates escaped from filtration systems (bag houses or electrostatic precipitators) of used TVs, monitors or FEDs disassembling processes are frequently found in nano or submicron sizes. Experimentally, in a very short contact time (<2 min), more than 90% of the nano phosphor particulates could be abstracted into room temperature ionic liquid (RTIL) (e.g., [C4min][PF6]). The least-square fitted X-ray absorption near edge structural (XANES) spectra show that nano ZnS (88%) and ZnO (12%) could be suspended in the RTIL for at least 10 days.
