    • Crustacean derived calcium phosphate systems: Application in defluoridation of drinking water in East African rift valley 

      Wagutu, Agatha W.; Machunda, Revocatus; Jande, Yusufu A. (Elsevier B.V., 2018-04-05)
      Calcium phosphate adsorbents, derived from prawns and crabs shell biomass wastes have been developed using wet chemistry and low temperature treatment. The adsorbents were characterized by X-ray diffractometry and Fourier ...
    • Study of crustacean biomass wastes for water defluoridation 

      Wagutu, Agatha W. (NM-AIST, 2018-09)
      High levels of fluoride (F-) in community drinking water supply is recognized as one of the major public health problems. Until now no efficient and affordable F- removal technology exists in many regions. This research ...
    • Study of interaction of chitosan with Fluoride 

      Wagutu, Agatha W.; Pogrebnaya, Tatiana P.; Machunda, Revocatus (Biointerface Research in Applied Chemistry, 2018-06-15)
      Interaction of chitosan with fluoride (F- ) has been studied using experimental and computational methods. Chitosan was extracted from prawns shells and modified by cross-linking with glutaraldehyde and protonation using ...
