Produced water treatment using microbial desalination cells
Globally, 250 million barrels of produced water is generated daily for extracting 80 million barrels of oil. Having a highly variable composition and no economic value, produced water presents serious environmental problems. ...
The Effect of Ultrasound on the Drug Delivery of RGD-Targeted Liposomes
Approaches used to treat cancer, with the most prominent being chemotherapy, have detrimental effects on patients’ health. Doxorubicin, a chemotherapeutic agent, alters normal cellular functions and can cause many fatal ...
Effects of Selected Ionic Liquids on the Vapor-Liquid-Equilibria of Water-2-Propanol System
Separation processes involving vapor and liquid phases represent a typical unit operation in most chemical industries, including distillation and absorption. A large fraction of the capital and operating costs is usually ...
Removal of Hexavalent Chromium from Wastewater using Modified Multiwall Carbon Nanotubes
Recently, the interest and research on the removal of heavy metals from wastewater have dramatically increased due to the adverse effects they have on humans, flora and fauna. Chromium, which is a heavy metal, is the tenth ...
Membrane Bioreactor-Desalination Microbial Fuel Cell Hybrid System
The microbial desalination fuel cell (MDFC) is an emerging desalination technology offering great promise of high salinity removal with zero energy input. Moreover, the membrane bioreactor (MBR) is of great reliability in ...
Effects of Operating Conditions on Water Absorption Capacity of Superabsorbent Hydrogels
Superabsorbent hydrogels are three-dimensional networks of hydrophilic polymers that have an extraordinary ability to absorb and retain water. Therefore, they have been utilized in many applications such as disposal diapers, ...
