We present some preliminary results regarding possible reducing of environment phenol contamination with nanotechnology involving. Magnetic nanoparticles stabilized in water dispersion with oleate were prepared for experimental testing of their interaction with wastewater samples containing phenol residues from industrial and sanitation sources. Magnetite with moderate level of cobalt doping was synthesized by co-precipitation method in the form of nanoparticles; further their surface was modified by the reaction with sodium oleate solution. Quantum chemical simulation of oleate structure recommended it for the interaction with water dipolar molecules as well as with metal cations at the nanocores surface. Transmission Electron Microscopy confirmed fine granulation of the prepared sample meaning significant total surface of nanoparticle sample. Phenol loaded water model was let to interact with magnetic nanoparticles in various reaction conditions. Phenol absorbance in the main spectral band showed the concentration diminution following magnetic nanoparticle action in the presence of ultraviolet radiation and hydrogen peroxide supply. Further experiments are planned for the better optimization of the phenol concentration decreasing in the large volumes of wastewater with adequate nanostructures, able to develop efficient interaction mechanisms with pollutant molecules.
