Cu(2+)-ZnO/cetylpyridinium-montmorillonite (Cu(2+)-ZnO/CP-MMT) complexes were prepared using montmorillonite (MMT), Cu(2+), Zn(2+), and cetylpyridinium (CP). The goal was to assess comparatively the adsorption properties of Cu(2+)-ZnO/CP-MMT in vitro using pathogenic Escherichia coli. The results showed that Cu(2+)-ZnO/CP-MMT adsorbed significantly (P<0.05… CONTINUE READING
