The present invention relates to an adsorbent material and to a process for obtaining it, used to reduce the level of organic pollutants in aqueous solutions, at ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure.

The adsorbent demonstrates adsorption capacity, evaluated in a batch system, against organic micro-pollutants of industrial origin (demonstrated by phenol adsorption) and against organic micro-pollutants from pharmaceuticals and personal care products category (demonstrated by ibuprofen adsorption). It is acknowledged the support obtained through the project Development through innovation (Dezvoltare prin inovare), SMIS 139532, Contract no. 7433/23.12.2021, project cofinanced from the European Regional Development Fund through the Regional Operational Program 2014-2020.
