Pharmaceuticals and Personal Care Products as Pollutants (PPCPs) are regarded as an emerging class of contaminants and are often released directly into the environment after passing through wastewater treatment plants that are not equipped to remove them. Some PPCPs are easily broken drown and processed, but others are not easily degraded and processed, so they enter sewers. Although little is known about potential adverse effects on non-target species, these substances can be endocrine disruptors that mimic, enhance or inhibit the action of hormones. These compounds are a source of concern because they are widely used and then released in large quantities.
On the other hand, the therapeutic misadventures, illicit drug ingestion or attempted suicide by using of harmful substances is a major worldwide public health problem that causes both a significant cost and severe heath problems, even death. Unfortunately, for the vast majority of these poisoning, there are no specific pharmacological antidotes and currently available detoxification methods are weak (<25% PPCPs adsorbed) and poorly prescribed.
In this context, a new class of crystalline nanoporous materials known as Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) has attracted an increasing attention from academic and industrial domains. Compared to classical adsorbent materials, MOFs present several advantages: a versatile composition, which allows almost infinite combinations, a large structural variability, an important porosity with a large panel of pore sizes and shapes, ranging from the micro to the mesopore, and the easy modulation of their physicochemical properties by the simple functionalization of the organic linker, including different functional groups.
Taking into account MOFs advantages, the objective of the present project is to develop MOFs specially tailored for the removal and degradation of very harmful pollutant from wastewater, as well as for human detoxification.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "CLEANUP-MOFS" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
The information about "CLEANUP-MOFS" are provided by the European Opendata Portal: CORDIS opendata.
