ZrO 2 nanoparticles were successfully fabricated via a facile hydrothermal process. The diameter and surface area of the as-prepared ZrO 2 nanoparticles were approximately 5-10nm and 102m 2/g, respectively. For the first time, Zr atoms with partial positive charges in a Lewis acid ZrO 2 nanoparticle adsorbent were used for the adsorption of negatively charged phospholipids from Jatropha oil. The capacity for phospholipid adsorption using the ZrO 2 nanoparticles was better than that of commercial ZrO 2 powder due to the larger surface area of the ZrO 2 nanoparticles. Phospholipid removal makes Jatropha oil a potential oil for biofuel applications. ? 2011.
