Adsorption of Estrone on Nf and Ro Membranes in Water and Wastewater Treatment

Adsorption of the trace contaminant estrone, a natural hormone and commonly abundant in surface waters and in treated as well as untreated wastewaters, to eight commercial nanofiltration (NF) and reverse osmosis (RO) membranes was investigated under welldefined conditions. Experiments were conducted in stainless steel stirred cells by spiking trace levels… (More)
