  • The Perfect Slime: Microbial Extracellular Polymeric Substances (EPS)

    The Perfect Slime presents the latest state of knowledge and all aspects of the Extracellular Polymeric Substances, (EPS) matrix – from the ecological and health to the antifouling perspectives.  The book brings together all the current material in order to expand our understanding of the functions, properties and characteristics of the matrix as ...

  • Biofouling of Spiral Wound Membrane Systems

    The study of membrane biofouling has increased strongly in the past four years, compared to the previous twenty two years, indicated by the more than doubling of the number of scientifi c papers. However, no single source gives an updated overview of biofouling. Biofouling of Spiral Wound Membrane Systems gives a complete and comprehensive ...

  • Marine and Industrial Biofouling

    Biofouling is a costly problem, and it is encountered in a wide spectrum of technical systems, ranging from the shipping industry, power industry, water purification, automobile industry, paint and pharmaceuticals, to the microelectronics and food industries. Micro- and macroorganisms attach to surfaces and accumulate there, forming biofilms that ...

  • In Search of Environmental Excellence

    For the past thirty years, citizens alarmed by an increasingly fouled environment have searched for a means to assess -- and correct -- the health of the land we inhabit. Now, with this eye-opening volume, we can at last identify what we've been doing right, and what we've been doing ...

  • Antifouling Compounds

    Increasing awareness of the deleterious effects of toxic components in antifouling coatings has raised interest in the potential for nontoxic alternatives. This book examines how marine organisms from bacteria to invertebrates and plants use chemicals to communicate and defend themselves. Chemicals that prevent colonisation of living surfaces are ...

  • Echinodermata

    Members of the phylum Echinodermata are among the most familiar marine invertebrates. Forms such as the sea star have become virtually a symbol of sea life. Used in ancient oriental medicine as a source of bioactive compounds, sea cucumbers, sea stars and sea urchins are now used for the extraction and purification of cytotoxic, haemolytic, ...

  • Ecotoxicology of Antifouling Biocides

    Organotin compounds, used as antifouling biocides since 1960, are chemical compounds that act as endocrine disrupters. It is not known how organotin compounds cause hormone disturbance, however, and many questions remain about their effect on aquatic organisms. Studies on organotin compounds have recently evolved, with many new findings reported. ...
