Poly(amidoamine) (PAMAM) dendrimers have been established as efficient ligands for the removal of humic acid (HA) foulant, based upon electrostatic and hydrophobic interactions, as well as hydrogen bonding. This proof-of-concept study indicates the broad utility of dendritic nanotechnology for water treatment and environmental applications.
