Nitric oxide treatment for the control of reverse osmosis membrane biofouling
Biofouling remains a key challenge for membrane-based water treatment systems. This study investigated the dispersal potential of the nitric oxide (NO) donor compound, PROLI NONOate, on single- and mixed-species biofilms ...
Community quorum sensing signalling and quenching : microbial granular biofilm assembly
Background: Recent reports exploring the role of gradients of quorum sensing (QS) signals in functional activated sludge have raised the question of whether shared systems of signalling synthesis and degradation, or quorum ...
Nitric oxide : a key mediator of biofilm dispersal with applications in infectious diseases
Studies of the biofilm life cycle can identify novel targets and strategies for improving biofilm control measures. Of particular interest are dispersal events, where a subpopulation of cells is released from the biofilm ...
The application of nitric oxide to control biofouling of membrane bioreactors
A novel strategy to control membrane bioreactor (MBR) biofouling using the nitric oxide (NO) donor compound PROLI NONOate was examined. When the biofilm was pre-established on membranes at transmembrane pressure (TMP) of ...
All metal nitrides solid-state asymmetric supercapacitors
Two metal nitrides, TiN porous layers and Fe2N nanoparticles, are grown uniformly with the assistance of atomic layer deposition on vertically aligned graphene nanosheets and used as the cathode and anode for solid-state ...
Carbon-based sorbents with three-dimensional architectures for water remediation
Over the past decade, carbon-based 3D architectures have received increasing attention in science and technology due to their fascinating properties, such as a large surface area, macroscopic bulky shape, and interconnected ...
