Instrumental developments for anomalous small‐angle X‐ray scattering from soft matter systems
An optimized instrument for anomalous small-angle X-ray scattering from charged soft matter is described. The experimental setup takes special care for single-photon detection sensitivity, high
Dynamic light scattering and rheology studies of aqueous solutions of amphiphilic sodium maleate containing copolymers
Light scattering techniques, video particle-tracking microrheology, and bulk rheology were employed to examine the structure and dynamics of a series of alternating sodium maleate copolymers with
Anomalous small-angle X-ray scattering from charged soft matter
A review of recent applications of Anomalous Small-Angle X-ray Scattering (ASAXS) to charged soft matter systems is presented. Although the potential of ASAXS was realized in the eighties [1],
Alternate Cycles Process for Municipal WWTPs Upgrading: Ready for Widespread Application?
The interest in the biological alternating anoxic/oxic reactors to upgrade existing wastewater treatment plants has been recently renewed, thanks to the use of reliable automatic control systems. To
Micropollutants removal and operating strategies in ultrafiltration membrane systems for municipal wastewater treatment : Preliminary results
Membrane systems are reported to enhance the removal of micropollutants (heavy metals and organic persistent compounds) from wastewaters. However, with regard to real municipal wastewater, where the
Structure and Dynamics in Aqueous Solutions of Amphiphilic Sodium Maleate-Containing Alternating Copolymers
The structure of aqueous solutions of sodium maleate copolymers with comonomers of variable hydrophobicity are examined using a combination of small-angle neutron scattering, small-angle X-ray
A Hybrid Denitrification–Alternate Cycles Reactor To Enhance the Nitrogen Biological Removal in a Real Wastewater Treatment Plant
This paper involves the retrofitting of a real municipal wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) of 6600 population equivalent (PE), from a traditional biological process to a predenitrificationalternating
Polymer-Grafted-Nanoparticles Nanocomposites: Dispersion, Grafted Chain Conformation, and Rheological Behavior
We investigate the dispersion mechanisms of nanocomposites made of well-defined polymer (polystyrene, PS) grafted-nanoparticles (silica) mixed with free chains of the same polymer using a combination
