The lack of water is the most serious threat to humanity that leads to more efficient water and sewage treatment. Currently, many scientists are looking for new coagulants, flocculants and physicochemical methods allowing for sufficient removal of pollutants from water. The presence of various types of pigments, including chromium (III) oxide, poses the(More)
A new adsorbent consisting of fumed, mixed alumina, silica, and titania in various proportions (AST 50) was investigated. The studied material was prepared by chemical vapor deposition method. The diameter of AST 50 primary particles was equal to about 51 nm which denotes that it can be classified as a nanomaterial. In the presented paper, the adsorption(More)
The influence of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) adsorption on the structure of the diffuse layer of silica (SiO2) in the temperature range 15–35 °C was examined. The microelectrophoresis method was used in the experiments to determine the zeta potential of the solid particles in the absence and presence of the polymer. The adsorption of PVA macromolecules causes(More)
Chromium(III) oxide is an amphoteric, dark green solid. This most stable dye is widely used in construction and ceramic industries as well as in painting. In this study, the attempt is made to determine flocculating properties of exopolysaccharide (EPS) synthesized by the bacteria Sinorhizobium meliloti 1021, which would increase the efficiency of(More)
In the presented paper, the influence of the molecular weight and the type of polyamino acid functional groups on the electrokinetic properties and the stability of chromium (III) oxide suspension were examined. Analysis of the data obtained from the adsorption, potentiometric titration, zeta potential, and stability measurements allows to propose(More)
The main goal of experiments was determination of solution pH and contents of anionic groups in polyacrylamide (PAM) macromolecules on the stability mechanism of chromium (III) oxide suspension. The spectrophotometry, potentiometric titration, microelectrophoresis, viscosimetry and turbidimetry were applied. They enabled determination of polymer adsorbed(More)
The influence of solution pH (in the range 3–9) on the adsorption of polyacrylic acid (PAA) on the mixed silica– alumina surface (SA-3: SiO2 97 %–Al2O3 3 % and SA-96: SiO2 4 %–Al2O3 96 %) was investigated. The following methods were applied in experiments: spectrophotometry, viscosimetry, potentiometric titration, and microelectrophoresis, which enable(More)
Disposal of the environmentally dangerous metal oxide suspensions from the waste water is an essential problem. The polymers adsorption can be one of the most effective and suitable methods. In the presented paper the ionic diblock copolymers impact on the Cr2O3 suspensions was investigated. The copolymer adsorption layers structure was determined on the(More)
Free energies of polyacrylic acid (PAA) adsorption (DeltaG( composite function)) on an alumina (Al(2)O(3)) surface in the temperature range 15-35 degrees C were estimated on the basis of adsorption-desorption measurements of the inorganic radioactive ions (36)Cl, (45)Ca, and (55)Fe. Adsorbing polymer macromolecules caused the desorption process of(More)
The lipid liquid crystalline sponge phase (L3) has the advantages that it is a nanoscopically bicontinuous bilayer network able to accommodate large amounts of water and it is easy to manipulate due to its fluidity. This paper reports on the detailed characterization of L3 phases with water channels large enough to encapsulate bioactive macromolecules such(More)
