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 ...
The influence of stereochemistry of the active compounds on fluoride adsorption efficiency of the plant biomass
(Science Publishing Group, 2014-08-20)
Several studies have reported various defluoridation capabilities of plant biomasses. The resultant variations in fluoride removal capacities are associated with the presence of different types of active functional groups ...
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 ...
