Review of fly ash inertisation treatments and recycling
Fly ash (FA) is a by-product of power, and incineration plants operated either on coal and biomass, or on municipal solid waste. FA can be divided into coal fly ash, obtained from power plant burningExpand
Microwave generated nanocomposites for making insoluble drugs soluble
In order for a drug to be bioavailable the human body must absorb it, and in oral treatments absorption takes place, after drug dissolution, by diffusion of the molecules through the gastrointestinalExpand
Recyclable SERS substrates based on Au-coated ZnO nanorods.
Vertically aligned Au-coated ZnO nanorods (Au-ZnO NRs) were investigated as cheap, efficient and recyclable SERS-active substrates. The ZnO NRs were prepared through a simple, low-temperatureExpand
Thermomechanical behavior of surface acoustic waves in ordered arrays of nanodisks studied by near-infrared pump-probe diffraction experiments
The ultrafast thermal and mechanical dynamics of a two-dimensional lattice of metallic nano-disks has been studied by near infrared pump-probe diffraction measurements, over a temporal range spanningExpand
Metal fractionation in soils and assessment of environmental contamination in Vallecamonica, Italy
Metal contamination was investigated in soils of the Vallecamonica, an area in the northern part of the Brescia province (Italy), where ferroalloy industries were active for a century until 2001. TheExpand
A new method for municipal solid waste incinerator (MSWI) fly ash inertization, based on colloidal silica.
Municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) is a straightforward way to manage waste, however the disposal of process byproducts, mainly bottom and fly ash, is still a problem, because of theirExpand
Atomic force microscopy evaluation of the effects of a novel antimicrobial multimeric peptide on Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
In this article we evaluated by atomic force microscopy (AFM) the effects of the (novel) tetrabranched antimicrobial peptide SB006 on morphology and mechanical properties of the gram-negativeExpand
Airborne particulate matter (PM) filter analysis and modeling by total reflection X-ray fluorescence (TXRF) and X-ray standing wave (XSW).
This work is presented as an improvement of a recently introduced method for airborne particulate matter (PM) filter analysis [1]. X-ray standing wave (XSW) and total reflection X-ray fluorescenceExpand
Embodied energy as key parameter for sustainable materials selection: The case of reusing coal fly ash for removing anionic surfactants
Abstract Coal fly ash (CFA) is an industrial by-product derived from coal combustion in thermal power plants. This abundant and low cost by-product is generally reemployed as an additive in theExpand
Preparation and micro-structural characterization of nanosized thin film of TiO2WO3 as a novel material with high sensitivity towards NO2
WO 3 -TlO 2 thin films were prepared by r.f. reactive sputtering from a Ti 0.1 -W 0.9 target. Annealing in synthetic air-flow of the initial W-Ti-O deposited compound results in layers with differentExpand
