    Author : Md Annaduzzaman; Prosun Bhattacharya; Mustafa Ersoz; Joydeep Dutta; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Chitosan Biopolymer; Characterization; Biodegradable; Arsenic V ; Uranium VI ; Adsorption; Isotherm; Kinetic model; Chitosan; Biopolymer; Karakterisering; Bionedbrytbar; arsenik V ; uran VI ; Adsorption; Isoterm; Kinetisk modell; Mark- och vattenteknik; Land and Water Resources Engineering;

    Abstract : In many countries over the world (including Sweden), metal toxicity in freshwater resources causes a severe drinking water quality problem and poses a threat to the environment and human health. Among the different toxic metals in the water resources of Sweden, arsenic and uranium are the biggest threats to health. READ MORE

  2. 2. Adsorption of Metallic Ions onto Chitosan : Equilibrium and Kinetic Studies

    Author : Martha Benavente; Joaquín Martínez; Olle Wahlberg; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Adsorption; biosorption; chitin; heavy metals; isotherm; kinetic models; mining; speciation; water treatment; Chemical engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : Equilibrium isotherms and the adsorption kinetics of heavy metals onto chitosan were studied experimentally. Chitosan, a biopolymer produced from crustacean shells, has applications in various areas, particularly in drinking water and wastewater treatment due to its ability to remove metallic ions from solutions.

  3. 3. Polymer Gels and their Interactions with Ionic Surfactants

    Author : Olof Rosén; Fysikalisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; Polymer-Surfactant Interactions; Modified Polymers; Binding Isotherm; Polymer Gels; Swelling Isotherm; Fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : The response on chemically crosslinked gels and polymer solutions on the addition of ionic surfactants and/or addition of salt at different temperatures have been studied. All polymers studied are water soluble and slightly hydrophobic or hydrophobically modified. READ MORE

  4. 4. Water diffusion and free volume in hydrophilic polymers

    Author : Charlotte Trotzig; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; free volume; self-diffusion; degree of crystallinity; glass transition temperature; tensile storage modulus; surface tension; isotherm; HPMC; PEO; water; triacetin; clay; Macromolecular chemistry; dynamic mechanical analysis; Fysikalisk kemi; differential scanning calorimetry; nuclear magnetic resonance; positron annihilation; Makromolekylär kemi;

    Abstract : During moisture uptake in polymers, the diffusion of the water molecules is believed to occur via unoccupied voids. These voids are called free volume cavities and their sizes are continuously altered when the moisture content in the polymer is enhanced. READ MORE

  5. 5. Adsorption Isotherm Parameter Estimation in Nonlinear Liquid Chromatography

    Author : Patrik Forssén; Bertil Gustafsson; Torgny Fornstedt; Georges Guiochon; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; High performance liquid chromatography HPLC ; Preparative chromatography; Competitive adsorption isotherm parameters; Perturbation peak PP method; Inverse method IM ; Computer simulation; Parameter estimation; Numerical method; Scientific Computing; Beräkningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the development and validation of methods for the industrially important area of adsorption isotherm parameter estimation in preparative, nonlinear high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Preparative chromatography is a powerful separation method to get pure compounds from more or less complex liquid mixtures, e.g. READ MORE
