Drinking water reservoir plays a vital role in the security of urban water supply, yet little is known about microbial community diversity harbored in the sediment of this oligotrophic freshwater environmental ecosystem. In the present study, integrating community level physiological profiles (CLPPs), nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-denaturing(More)
The contamination of surface water by nitrogen due to fertilizer application and discharge of wastewater is an increasingly serious problem. A multifunctional device, which combines water-lifting and aeration (WLA) with oligotrophic biological contact oxidation (OBCO), was developed for pretreatment of raw water to reduce nitrogen. The performance of(More)
We designed and synthesized a novel organic-inorganic hybrid material polypyrrole-Co3O4 (Ppy-Co3O4), then mixed it with ionic liquid (IL) to form stable composite films for the immobilization of Hemoglobin (Hb) and Glucose Oxidase (GOD). The combination of Ppy and Co3O4 as well as IL created a platform with exceptional characteristics, and the content of(More)
In this article, three different inorganic/organic doped carbon aerogel (CA) materials (Ni-CA, Pd-CA, and Ppy-CA) were, respectively, mixed with ionic liquid (IL) to form three stable composite films, which were used as enhanced elements for an integrated sensing platform to increase the surface area and to improve the electronic transmission rate.(More)
Alterations of fish behavioral responses are sensitive indicators to identify accidental chemical pollution. In this research, a series of exposure tests were conducted to investigate behavioral changes of adult zebrafish (Danio rerio) exposed to deltamethrin (DM) in six concentrations of 0, 0.15, 1.5, 3.75, 7.5 and 15 μg/L. Swimming changes in zebrafish(More)
The sediment hosts a variety of fungal species in water supply reservoirs; however, the taxonomically and functionally diverse fungal populations have remained vastly unexplored. Here, quantitative PCR (qPCR) and recently developed high-throughput 454 GS FLX pyrosequencing were combined to investigate the abundance and diversity of sediment fungal(More)
Flowerlike, spherical, and walnutlike NiO microspheres were respectively mixed with ionic liquid (IL) to form three stable composite films, which were used to immobilize hemoglobin (Hb) on carbon paste electrodes. Spectroscopic and electrochemical examinations revealed that the three NiO/IL composites were biocompatible matrix for immobilizing Hb, which(More)
The current study mainly focused on the biodegradation process of p-nitroacetophenone (NP) in the presence and absence of goethite mediated by iron-reducing microbe (Shewanella decolorationis S12) and electron shuttle. The results showed that introduction of electron shuttle could obviously lead to an accumulation of biodegradation intermediate, especially(More)
A method has been developed for the separation of two geometrical isomers of the {Fe[3-(2-pyridyl)-5,6-diphenyl-1,2,4-triazine]3}2+([Fe(PDT)3]2+) using ion-pair reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC). The effects of the chromatographic conditions, such as the content of acetonitrile and the type and concentration of the ion-pair(More)
The characteristics and kinetics of redox transformation of a redox mediator, anthraquinone-2-sulfonate (AQS), during microbial goethite reduction by Shewanella decolorationis S12, a dissimilatory iron reduction bacterium (DIRB), were investigated to provide insights into "redox mediator-iron oxide" interaction in the presence of DIRB. Two pre-incubation(More)
