Scholarcy highlights

  • The primary waste material of 34.43 million metric tons of peanut produced per year in the world is peanut skin
  • This peanut skin is carbonized at 700 °C under nitrogen atmosphere followed by oxidative treatment produce water soluble carbogenic nano spheres of 10–40 nm in size
  • Carbonization of peanut skin separated by roasting method from peanut, at 700 °C in N2 atmosphere give carbogenic nanospheres within range of 10–40 nm in size
  • These carbogenic nanospheres have promising application in drug-delivery, supports for catalysts and in different fields
