In recent years, adsorption has been accepted as one of the most appropriate processes for decolorization of wastewaters. This paper presents experimental results on application of peat for removal of structurally diverse dyes (azo, oxazine, triphenylmethane, thiazine and others) with emphasis on relevant factors such as the adsorbate-adsorbent chemical(More)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the adsorption by peat of four reactive textile dyes with the following commercial names: Yellow CIBA WR 200% (Y), Dark Blue CIBA WR (DB), Navy CIBA WB (N), and Red CIBA WB 150% (R), used in a cotton-polyester fabric finishing plant. The decolorization levels obtained varied between 5% and 30%, and the most(More)
Interest in production of ligninolytic enzymes has been growing over recent years for their use in various applications such as recalcitrant pollutants bioremediation; specifically, versatile peroxidase (VP) presents a great potential due to its catalytic versatility. The proper selection of the fermentation mode and the culture medium should be an(More)
Applying a voltage difference between a conductor and a sessile droplet sitting on a thin dielectric film separating it from the conductor will cause the drop to spread. When the conductor is a good metal, the change of the drop’s contact angle due to the voltage is given the Young-Lippmann equation. Here we report experiments with lightly-doped, single(More)
