Chitosan-based Materials and Their Application toward Arsen...
By Lee D. Wilson, PhD Abstract This article presents an overview of chitosan results from the literature that deal mostly with the adsorptive uptake of inorganic arsenic species. Biopolymers such as chitosan and its modified […]
An Overview of Coagulation-Flocculation Technology
By Lee D. Wilson, PhD Background Coagulation is an essential chemical-driven process in water and wastewater treatment, as evidenced by widespread use of such technology in food/beverage production, remediation of mine tailings, petroleum refining and secondary […]
Chitosan Powder: Emerging Technology for Contaminant Remova...
By Lee D. Wilson, PhD Chitosan is a polysaccharide-based biomaterial derived from renewable feedstock, such as the shells of crustaceans. Chitosan displays limited adsorbent properties toward various types of contaminants (i.e., petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals). […]
