In this work, a four-level Box-Behnken factorial design was employed combining with response surface methodology (RSM) to optimize the medium composition for the degradation of phenol by pseudomonas putida (ATCC 31800). A mathematical model was then developed to show the effect of each medium composition and their interactions on the biodegradation of(More)
The adsorption of Remazol black 13 (Reactive) dye onto chitosan in aqueous solutions was investigated. Experiments were carried out as function of contact time, initial dye concentration (100-300mg/L), particle size (0.177, 0.384, 1.651mm), pH (6.7-9.0), and temperature (30-60 degrees C). The equilibrium adsorption data of reactive dye on chitosan were(More)
Ca-montmorillonite (Ca-Mont) was exchanged with titanium cations and the adsorption equilibrium and kinetics of Basic Green 5 (BG5) and Basic Violet 10 (BV10) on these montmorillonites were measured to examine the ion-exchange effects on the basic dyes adsorption. The relationship between the dye adsorption and the alteration of pore structures of(More)
The efficiency of soil remediation by surfactant washing was evaluated via the measured distribution coefficients of a number of nonpolar compounds in several soil-water mixtures. The studied compounds (contaminants) are BTEX (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and p-xylene) and three chlorinated pesticides (lindane, alpha-BHC, and heptachlor epoxide), which(More)
The performance of a new biosorbent system, consisting of a fungal biomass immobilized within an orange peel cellulose absorbent matrix, for the removal of Zn(2+) heavy metal ions from an aqueous solution was tested. The amount of Zn(II) ion sorption by the beads was as follows; orange peel cellulose with Phanerochaete chrysosporium immobilized Ca-alginate(More)
This article covers the adsorption capacity of microcystin-LR (MC-LR) onto natural organic matter (NOM) or suspended solids of water samples from reservoirs (Emerald and Jade reservoirs) and rivers (Dongshan, Erhjen and Wukai rivers) in Taiwan to determine the fate, transport behavior and photo-degradation of microcystins in natural water systems. Langmuir(More)
BACKGROUND, AIM, AND SCOPE This study demonstrated the adsorption capacity of microcystin-LR (MC-LR) onto sediment samples collected from different reservoirs (Emerald and Jade reservoirs) and rivers (Dongshan, Erhjen, and Wukai rivers) in Taiwan to investigate the fate, transport behavior, and photodegradation of MC-LR. MAIN FEATURES Langmuir adsorption(More)
The present work was aimed at developing stability enhanced silica gel-supported macroporous chitosan membrane for immobilization of enzymes. The membrane was surface modified using various cross-linking agents for covalent immobilization of enzyme Bovine serum albumin. The results of FT-IR, UV–vis, and SEM analyses revealed the effect of cross-linking(More)
Biodegradation of phenol using Pseudomonas pictorum (NICM 2074) a potential biodegradant of phenol was investigated for its degrading potential under different operating conditions. The neural network input parameter set consisted of the same set of four levels of maltose (0.025, 0.05, 0.075 g/l), phosphate (3, 12.5, 22 g/l), pH (7, 8, 9) and temperature(More)
The influence of natural organic matter (NOM) constituents on contaminant distribution coefficients was evaluated by determining the Koc values of aromatic and aliphatic organic compounds (solutes) with clays modified with both aromatic- and aliphatic-rich organic constituents. The studied compounds consisted of naphthalene, phenanthrene, n-pentane, and(More)
