Glassy C spherical powder (10-20 µm diam.) modified with cysteine Me ester is an inexpensive, novel material for the rapid removal of large quantities of toxic heavy metals such as Cd(II), Cu(II) and As(III) from water, with wide ranging potential applications such as 3rd world drinking water filtration or environmental cleanup.
