Applications of bioremediation and phytoremediation

Posted on 17. February, 2014.

The decontamination of soil and water from pollutants using microorganisms is known as bioremediation. This can occur naturally or be stimulated, e.g. by the application of fertilisers.  More recently it has been shown that through the addition of matched microbe strains to the medium, the effectiveness of the resident microbe population to decompose contaminants may be enhanced.

Photoinduced electron transfer processes of functionalized nanocarbons; fullerenes, nanotubes and graphene

Posted on 14. January, 2014.

To solve the energy demands for a sustainable society, clean solar energy is crucial. Thus, finding methods for efficient light energy conversion is important. Molecular devices employing composites of nanocarbons such as fullerenes, single wall carbon nanotubes and graphene are promising. Light-induced electron-transfer processes of these nanocarbons hybridized with photosensitizers are more favourable than ordinary molecules.

Adsorption of arsenic on pre-treated zeolite at different pH levels

Posted on 14. January, 2014.

Water pollution by arsenic has become one of the biggest problems faced by the sustainable development in several countries. Arsenic contained in drinking water is responsible for many health problems such as lung cancer, bladder cancer, diabetes, muscular weakness, and black foot disease. This study shows the importance of using natural pre-treated zeolites in the adsorption of arsenic in water due to the adsorption percentages that are higher than 90%, controlling the pH in the pre-treatment.

Novel approach to the ultrasonic degradation of polymers: development of a general kinetic equation

Posted on 14. January, 2014.

The general applicability of the common kinetic equations is discussed to develop a general kinetic equation for the ultrasonic degradation of polymers. The common ultrasonic-kinetic equations for polymers are used to fit original data collected from the literature. The fitting accuracy is evaluated by the residual standard deviation. The results indicate that the first-order equation and second-order equations are the most accurate and can replace other kinetic equations.
