To investigate the potential activation of hydrogen peroxide by a novel catalyst, reducing the concentration of hydrogen peroxide required and the time taken for mycobactericidal activity. The mycobactericidal properties of an iron-based novel heterogeneous-modified polyacrylonitrile (PAN) catalyst in combination with hydrogen peroxide were examined against(More)
The Fenton oxidation process is one of the most widely used technologies in the oxidation of organic pollutants. The identification and quantification of end products of these oxidation processes is of prime importance due to environmental concerns of pollution and toxicity. In this work, we have developed a highly sensitive, cheap, easy and rapid method of(More)
Laboratory-scale experiments were carried out using up-flow 7 L Submerged Aerated Filter reactors packed with wool fibre or commercial plastic pall rings, Kaldnes, (70% by volume) support media for the tertiary treatment of sewage. The performance of the wool bioreactor was more consistent than that with Kaldnes medium, for both TOC removal (93%) and SS(More)
The uptake of the three species of the drug model fluorescein (fluorescein sodium salt (FNa), fluorescein free acid (F), and fluorescein diacetate (FDA)) by zeolite NaX and the mesoporous zeotype MCM-41 was investigated as well as their release rates into solutions at pH 7 and pH 4.5. UV/Vis analysis was carried out at a wavelength of 490 nm. Uptakes of the(More)
A pilot scale field trial for a novel metal removal technology in the treatment of mine waters was performed using mine water from White Tip, part of the former Snailbeach lead mine in Shropshire, United Kingdom (UK). The water is circum-neutral pH and contains elevated zinc (Zn), cadmium (Cd) and lead (Pb). The novel treatment process is based on ion(More)
AIMS To investigate the potential activation of hydrogen peroxide by a novel catalyst, reducing the concentration of hydrogen peroxide required and the time taken for microbial inactivation. METHODS AND RESULTS The antimicrobial properties of an iron-based novel heterogeneous polyacrylonitrile catalyst in combination with hydrogen peroxide were examined(More)
A novel fibrous catalyst was used to destroy the pollutants in Kodak Non-Silver-Bearing (NSB) photographic processing effluents with high chemical oxygen demand (COD) value. The oxidation activity of the catalyst was evaluated in terms of COD reduction of the effluent. The effects of concentrations of hydrogen peroxide and effluent, amount of catalyst,(More)
