Heavy metal levels were investigated in different tissues of razor clam (Solen regularis) and sediments collected from Moyan and Serpan, Sarawak. Analysis of elements, Cd, Mn, Fe, Cr and Cu were carried out in soft tissues, gills, siphon, foot and whole tissues of razor clams (Solen regularis) using Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (FAAS).(More)
The TiO2 photocatalytic degradation of the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) naproxen (NPX) has been studied using a laboratory-scale photoreactor equipped with a medium pressure mercury lamp. UV/TiO2 photocatalysis proved highly efficient in the elimination of NPX from a variety of water matrices, including distilled water, unfiltered river water and(More)
In this study, sago wastes were investigated for its potential in removing Zn from aqueous solution. The equilibrium adsorption level has been studied under varying conditions of time, initial metal ion concentration, adsorbent dose, particle size and pH. The adsorption parameters were analyzed using Freundlich and Langmuir models. Kinetics of adsorption of(More)
Given that drugs and their degradation products are likely to occur as concoctions in wastewater, the degradation of a mixture of two nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), diclofenac (DCF) and naproxen (NPX), was investigated by solar photolysis and titanium dioxide (TiO2)-mediated solar photocatalysis using an immersion-well photoreactor. An(More)
The use of nanosized titanium dioxide (TiO2) and zinc oxide (ZnO) in the suspension form during treatment makes the recovering and recycling of photocatalysts difficult. Hence, supported photocatalysts are preferred for practical water treatment applications. This study was conducted to investigate the efficiency of calcium alginate (CaAlg) beads that were(More)
