Abstract: In order to diagnose and fully correlate structural, chemical, and functional features of macromolecules and particles in solution, we propose the integration of spectroscopy and scattering on the same measuring volume and at the same time in a dedicated sample environment with multiple probes. Combined SAXS/UV−vis and SAXS/Raman ...

Water and environmental analysis according to US EPA regulations using the lambda 25/35/45 UV/Vis spectrophotometers

by PerkinElmer, Inc.  (Oct. 28, 2011)

UV/Vis spectroscopy is an important analytical technique used for the determination of many water constituents. Environmental regulations in many countries prescribe the use of UV/Vis spectroscopy. Depending on the method, UV/Vis determinations of metal and organic nonmetal analytes in water have a minimum detectability in the ppb-ppm range. The ...

The structure and origin of dissolved organic matter studied by UV-vis spectroscopy and fluorescence spectroscopy in lake in arid and semi-arid region

by IWA Publishing  (Mar. 1, 2011)

To develop a proper indicator which could predict water quality and trace pollution sources is critically important for the management of sustainable aquatic ecosystem. In our study, seven water samples collected from Wuliangsuhai Lake in Inner Mongolia were used. UV-visible spectra and synchronous fluorescence spectra were applied to investigate ...

A real-time control strategy for separation of highly polluted storm water based on UV–Vis online measurements – from theory to operation

by IWA Publishing  (Jan. 1, 2011)

‘Classical’ real-time control (RTC) strategies in sewer systems are based on water level and flow measurements with the goal of activation of retention volume. The control system rule of ‘clean (storm water) runoff into the receiving water – polluted runoff into the treatment plant’ has been thwarted by rough operating conditions and lack of ...

Photocatalytic reduction of Cr(VI) in a fully illuminated fluidized bed reactor

by IWA Publishing  (Dec. 1, 2011)

The potential of a fluidized bed reactor for the UV-A photocatalytic reduction of Cr(VI), a priority water pollutant, by utilizing a TiO2/quartz sand composite, was explored. The effects of oxalic acid (OA) as a sacrificial agent in the heterogeneous system was also investigated and compared with the homogeneous photoreduction by the same ...

Ferrate(VI): a novel oxidant for degradation of cationic surfactant – cetylpyridinium bromide

by IWA Publishing  (May 16, 2013)

Ferrate(VI) is an efficient multi-functional water treatment reagent that has several novel properties, such as strong oxidation, absorption, flocculation, disinfection and deodorization. The removal of cationic surfactants based on ferrate (K2FeO4) was performed in the case of cetylpyridinium bromide (CPB). The influence of operating ...
