Novel mixed matrix hollow beads were prepared by phase inversion technique using polyacrylonitrile (PAN) as base polymer and aluminum fumarate (Alfu) metal organic framework (MOF) as additive. The beads were characterized in terms of surface morphology, surface charge, surface area and contact angle. With the incorporation of the hydrophilic Alfu MOF, contact angle of the corresponding beads decreases from 80° to 51° indicating an increase in hydrophilicity. The 10 wt% incorporated beads sustained upto 150 hours of operation with fluoride concentration of 10 mg/l at flow rate of 10 l/day. Regeneration study and leaching of aluminum were also investigated.
