Mesoporous silica SBA-15 without and with modification of surface by grafting with aminoalcoxysilanes is prepared is the experiment. The prepared samples are characterized by adsorption/desorption of nitrogen. Results confirms the prepared materials having a specific surface area up to 846m2/g, which are improved for the capture of metals by grafting with the amino group. The sorption of Cu2+ cations as well as SO42− anions from the acidic solution is investigated. The modified mesoporous silica is confirmed to have better sorption capacity than unmodified mesoporous silica.

All composites based on natural fibers absorb moisture in humid atmosphere and when immersed in water or capillary action. Therefore, one of the major drawbacks of polymer fibers is their high availability to moisture sorption and their heterogeneity, which leads to a weak interface between the fibers and matrix and a poor transfer of the applied stress between the materials, resulting to reduction of physico-mechanical properties. An experimental investigation was conducted to testing the water absorption of hemp composites with MgO-cement binder and its influence on the physico-mechanical and thermal characteristics of composites. The achieved results of composites indicate that water absorption test has deteriorative influence on observed properties due to the degradation of the fibre-matrix interface.
