    Polyethersulfone (PES) nanofibers were prepared by using electrospinning technique, and then were used for the removal of several endocrine disrupters from aqueous solutions. The structure of the nanofibers was characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The PES nanofibers could remove...

    The structure of water confined in nanometer-sized cavities is important because, at this scale, a large fraction of hydrogen bonds can be perturbed by interaction with the confining walls. Unusual fluidity properties can thus be expected in the narrow pores, leading to new phenomena like the...
