This content is a preprint and has not undergone peer review at the time of posting.


Magnetic biochar (MBC) is obtained from the same raw materials used to have biochar. With inclusion of iron or addition of magnetic precursors, biochar turns into a material which has magnetic separation capabilities. Defined as a win-win material for the treatment of wastewater pollution, here we consider MBC for those specific applications where it is acting as a ''catcher in the water''.
