Impact of Sunlight and Natural Organic Matter on the Fate, Transport, and Toxicity of Carbon Based Nanomaterials
The fast growing production of carbon based nanomaterials (CNMs) and their potential widespread use in consumer products raise concerns regarding their potential risks to human health and ecosystems. The present study ...
Assessing Photocatalytic Oxidation Using Modified TiO2 Nanomaterials for Virus Inactivation in Drinking Water: Mechanisms and Application
Photocatalytic oxidation is an alternative water treatment method under consideration for disinfecting water. Chlorine disinfection can form harmful byproducts, and some viruses (e.g. adenoviruses) are resistant to other ...
Heteroaggregation of Multiwall Carbon Nanotubes and Naturally Occurring Colloids in Aquatic Systems
The heteroaggregation of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) with naturally occurring colloids (NOCs) plays an important role in determining the ultimate fate and transport of nanomaterials in the environment. The objective ...
The Impact of D-amino acids on Formation and Integrity of Biofilm – Effect of Growth Condition and Bacteria Type
Biofouling is a major issue in applying nanofiltration and reverse osmosis technologies for wastewater treatment. Biofilm formed on the surface of membranes will severely decline the flux and cause energy waste. In this ...
