The aim of this paper is to provide an overall description of coagulation-flocculation process and its applications in water and wastewater treatment. The significance of coagulation – flocculation in the area of water and wastewater treatment is reviewed and evaluated, emphasizing on the series of applications employed, including destabilization of colloids, removal of inorganic and organic matter (particulate and/or dissolved), removal of metals and anions (arsenic, phosphate etc), as well as… Expand

Polyaluminium silicate chloride - a systematic study for the preparation and application of an efficient coagulant for water or wastewater treatment.
TLDR
The obtained results suggest that in order to produce a silica-based polyaluminium coagulant with improved coagulation properties, the basicity (OH/Al ratio) should be between 1.5 and 2.0, the silica content (Al/Si molar ratio) between 10 and 15 and should be prepared preferable with the co-polymerization technique.
