Keywords: magnetic modification, magnetic composite materials, magnetic separation, microwave-assisted synthesis, mechanochemical synthesis
Selected methods of magnetic modification of the originally non-magnetic materials are presented to show the importance of new materials and technologies for se¬condary school students and teachers. Through innovative, simple, smart and rapid experiments, chemistry teachers can motivate their students to foster an active interest in this field. The magnetic composite materials prepared can easily be manipulated in the suspensions with a magnet and used for, e.g., the removal of organic dyes.
