Photocatalytic destruction of volatile organic compounds from the oil and gas industry. (2014)
Thesis
TOKODE, O. 2014. Photocatalytic destruction of volatile organic compounds from the oil and gas industry. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Heterogeneous photocatalysis is an advanced oxidation technology widely applied in environmental remediation processes. It is a relatively safe and affordable technology with a low impact on the environment, and has found applications in a number of...

Detection, analysis, and photocatalytic destruction of the freshwater taint compound geosmin. (2007)
Thesis
BELLU, E. 2007. Detection, analysis, and photocatalytic destruction of the freshwater taint compound geosmin. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

A significant issue affecting the aquaculture and water industries is the presence of off-flavour compounds in water, which cause problems by imparting an undesirable earthy/musty flavour and smell to water and fish. Two predominant off-flavour compo... Read More about Detection, analysis, and photocatalytic destruction of the freshwater taint compound geosmin..

The destruction of the cyanobacterial toxin microcystin-LR by semiconductor photocatalysis. (2000)
Thesis
CORNISH, B.J.P.A. 2000. The destruction of the cyanobacterial toxin microcystin-LR by semiconductor photocatalysis. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

In fresh waters where cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) flourish, dense growths known as blooms occur. Such blooms present a threat to human and animal health as many of these cyanobacteria produce toxins. One such group of toxins are the microcystins...
