Ultrasonically induced degradation of 2-methylisoborneol and geosmin.


2-Methylisoborneol (MIB) and geosmin (GSM) are taste and odor compounds produced by cyanobacteria in surface waters. While the strong odors and musty flavors of MIB and GSM are generally associated with poor water quality, the removal of these semi-volatile compounds presents a significant challenge to drinking water providers. Likewise in aquaculture… (More)
