Size exclusion chromatography to characterize DOC removal in drinking water treatment.
A full-scale (110 ML/d) potable water treatment plant (WTP) based on the MIEX process, an innovative new process based on a strong base anion-exchange resin with magnetic properties, has beenExpand

Determination of sixteen polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in aqueous and solid samples from an Italian wastewater treatment plant.
A robust procedure for the determination of 16 US EPA PAHs in both aqueous (e.g. wastewaters, industrial discharges, treated effluents) and solid samples (e.g. suspended solids and sludge) from aExpand

A new method for calculation of the chlorine demand of natural and treated waters.
Conventional methods of calculating chlorine demand are dose dependent, making intercomparison of samples difficult, especially in cases where the samples contain substantially differentExpand

Analysis of polysulfides in drinking water distribution systems using headspace solid-phase microextraction and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.
Sulfide and polysulfides are strong nucleophiles and reducing agents that participate in many environmentally significant processes such as the formation of sulfide minerals and volatile organicExpand

Iodate and iodo-trihalomethane formation during chlorination of iodide-containing waters: role of bromide.
The kinetics of iodate formation is a critical factor in mitigation of the formation of potentially toxic and off flavor causing iodoorganic compounds during chlorination. This study demonstratesExpand

To add or not to add: the use of quenching agents for the analysis of disinfection by-products in water samples.
The formation of disinfection by-products (DBPs) is a public health concern due to their potential adverse health effects. Robust and sensitive methods for the analysis of DBPs, as well asExpand

Powdered activated carbon coupled with enhanced coagulation for natural organic matter removal and disinfection by-product control: application in a Western Australian water treatment plant.
The removal of organic precursors of disinfection by-products (DBPs), i.e. natural organic matter (NOM), prior to disinfection and distribution is considered as the most effective approach toExpand

The formation of malodorous dimethyl oligosulphides in treated groundwater: the role of biofilms and potential precursors.
Water distributed from the Wanneroo Groundwater Treatment Plant intermittently contains dimethyl trisulphide (DMTS). The compound is responsible for a "swampy odour" in the water. DMTS productionExpand

Analysis of pharmaceuticals in indirect potable reuse systems using solid-phase extraction and liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry.
A solid-phase extraction (SPE) LC-MS/MS method for 18 commercial drugs in secondary wastewater and product water from water recycling plants using microfiltration (MF) and reverse osmosis (RO) hasExpand

Influence of surface texture and acid–base properties on ozone decomposition catalyzed by aluminum (hydroxyl) oxides
The decomposition of aqueous ozone in the presence of three aluminum (hydroxyl) oxides was studied, respectively. It was hypothesized that surface hydroxyl groups and acid–base properties of aluminumExpand
