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 ...
The role of polymer flocculants in microfiltration of surface water
Polymer flocculants, traditionally used with primary coagulant to enhance flocculation and sedimentation, are used in the coagulation-/microfiltration process as well assuming they can improve membrane performance similarly. ...
Filtration of Complex Suspensions Using N anofiltration and Reverse Osmosis Membranes: Foulant-Foulant and FoulantMembrane Interactions
Membrane filtration is a promising advanced treatment method that has the technological capability to treat waters containing contaminants that typically escape traditional water treatment methods, including trace ...
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 ...
Effect of D-Tyrosine on Bacterial Biofilms: Mechanisms and Potential Applications in Membrane Biofouling Control
Biofouling leads to diverse detrimental effects in water treatment and distribution systems. D-Tyrosine can be produced by a variety of bacteria and inhibits formation as well as triggers disassembly of biofilms thus has ...
Effect of Kaolinite on the Fate and Transport of Carbon Nanotubes
Fate and transport of the engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) in aquatic systems has been increasingly concerned due to their potential human exposure and reported toxicity to the living organisms. The ubiquitous naturally ...
