A reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method for the measurement of lamotrigine (LTG) simultaneously with phenobarbitone (PB), phenytoin (PHT), and carbamazepine (CBZ) is described using hexobarbital as the internal standard. The method uses the chromophore at 307 nm to detect LTG in the presence of interfering CBZ-10,11-epoxide(More)
The feasibility of using methanotrophs in an attached-film, fluidized-bed (MAFFB) reactor system has been under investigation since 1987. Mixed culture, methane-utilizing attached biofilms were developed on diatomaceous earth particles and on granular activated carbon. The required feed gases, methane and oxygen, were supplied to the attached biofilm in(More)
Ion exchange resins and glass microscope slides were used to investigate factors affecting attachment of nitrifying bacteria to solid surfaces and the effect of attachment on inhibition ofNitrobacter by potassium ethyl xanthate. The ammonium oxidizerNitrosomonas attached preferentially to cation exchange resins while the nitrite oxidizerNitrobacter(More)
Trichloroethene was degraded in expanded-bed bioreactors operated with mixed-culture methanotrophic attached films. Biomass concentrations of 8 to 75 g volatile solids (VS) per liter static bed (L(sb)) were observed. Batch TCE degradation rates at 35 degrees C followed the Michaelis-Menten model, and a maximum TCE degradation rate (q(max)) of 10.6 mg(More)
