Journal Article
GRAHAM, D., KISCH, H., LAWTON, L.A. and ROBERTSON, P.K.J. 2010. The degradation of microcystin-LR using doped visible light absorbing photocatalysts. Chemosphere [online], 78(9), pages 1182-1185. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.chemosphere.2009.12.003

Microcystins are one of the primary hepatotoxic cyanotoxins released from cyanobacteria. The presence of these compounds in water has resulted in the death of both humans and domestic and wild animals. Although microcystins are chemically stable tita...

Evaluation of methodology for detection and quantification of coliform bacteria and their survival in soil and water. (2010)
Thesis
BANNISTER, E. 2010. Evaluation of methodology for detection and quantification of coliform bacteria and their survival in soil and water. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

In Aberdeenshire, approximately 25,000 people rely on potable water from private water supplies. Many of these supplies are of questionable quality with regards to microbiological contamination, which is often due to a lack of maintenance and protect...
