Title: Extraction of rare earth elements using magnetite@MOF composites

Abstract

Magnetic core–shell microspheres were developed to extract rare earth elements (REEs) from aqueous and brine solutions with up to 99.99% removal efficiency. The shell, composed of a thermally and chemically stable functionalized metal–organic framework (MOF), is grown over a synthesized Fe 3 O 4 magnetic core (magnetite@MOF).
