Presence of chlorophenols in drinking water has been determined to be hazardous to human health. Efficient tools for chlorophenols removal are required. Structure—property relationships (SPR) was applied to data of chorophenol recovery after sorption on multi-walled carbon nanotubes. SPR methodology was applied to generate five different models describing recovery process in six types of eluents. Specific interactions between eluents and chlorophenols were reflected by using specific mixture descriptors. Specific descriptors and most suitable eluent were identified for sorption. This project is currently being prepared for publication. Current and future studies include studying other methods of extraction of these compounds.Not Submitted
