Fluoride Variations in Rivers on the Slopes of Mount Meru in Tanzania
This study reports the variations of fluoride ions in rivers on the slopes of Mount Meru in the northern part of Tanzania. More than 318 water samples were collected from Temi, Nduruma, Tengeru, andMaji ya Chai Rivers in ...
Assessment of water quality variation in rivers through comparative index technique and its reliability for decision making
(Tanzania Journal of Science, 2018)
The National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) and Weighed Arithmetic Index (WAI) methods for water quality index (WQI) have been studied to evaluate their reliability in water quality assessment in rivers. Water samples were ...
Land-Use and Land Cover Changes on the Slopes of Mount Meru-Tanzania
(Current World Environment, 2018-12)
Environmental transitions analysis was done in part of the land on the slopes of the foothills of Mount Meru in thirty (30) years’ time from 1986 to 2016 using satellite-derived land use/cover maps and a Cellular Automata ...
Crustacean derived calcium phosphate systems: Application in defluoridation of drinking water in East African rift valley
(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 interaction of chitosan with Fluoride
(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 ...
