Novel water treatment processes

Taseidifar, Mojtaba; Sanchis, Adrian Garrido; Pashley, Richard; Ninham, Barry


The effect of a natural, biodegradable surfactant obtained using a nov-el and efficient chemical reaction between cysteine (a thiol-based amino acid) and an octanoyl (C8) compound, was investigated for its application to the ion flotation removal of low levels of different contaminant ions from aqueous solution. The syn-thesised amino acid-based single-chain surfactant shows a high water solubility and exhibits extensive foaming in a...[Show more]
