With the wide production and applications of graphene and its derivatives, their toxicity to the environment has received much attention nowadays. In this study, we investigated the toxicity of graphene oxide (GO) to white rot fungus (Phanerochaete chrysosporium). GO was prepared by modified Hummers method and well characterized before use. P. chrysosporium(More)
Graphene sponge (GS) has been widely employed for water purification, but adsorption capacity loss frequently occurs during the formation of spongy structure. In this study, we reported the hydrothermal preparation of S-doped GS for the removal of Cu(2+) with a huge adsorption capacity of 228 mg/g, 40 times higher than that of active carbon. The adsorption(More)
This study focuses on evaluating the suitability of three interpolation methods in terms of their accuracy, for small urban catchments. The Bridgewater Creek catchment in south Brisbane is the region of study. Thirteen storm events measured over 24-hours are interpolated using an inverse-distance weighted average method, thin plate smoothing spline, and an(More)
Fe-H2O2 Fenton system is widely applied in water treatment nowadays, but the acidification and sludge generation are crucial problems to be solved. Herein, we report that Fe3O4/TiO2/C nanocomposites (FTCNCs) were able to catalyze the decomposition of H2O2 at neutral pH and can be applied in dye decoloration. FTCNCs were prepared by precipitating TiO2 on(More)
Observed reductions in pollutant concentrations through stormwater treatment devices commonly display the characteristic form of exponential decay, in which the rate of decrease of pollutant concentration with distance is proportional to the concentration. The observation of an apparently irreducible or background pollutant concentration, C*, in many(More)
