Development of a novel photocatalytic reactor for the treatment of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. (2019)
Thesis
GBADAMOSI, T.G. 2019. Development of a novel photocatalytic reactor for the treatment of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon. Robert Gordon University [online], PhD thesis. Available from: https://openair.rgu.ac.uk

Water pollution through the discharge of contaminated water into the environment has been a major problem, both to humans and aquatic life. These potential consequences mean that water pollution has therefore received major attention. In industry, a...

Bioavailability of organic contaminants in sediments. (2008)
Thesis
YATES, K. 2008. Bioavailability of organic contaminants in sediments. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

The bioavailability of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and chlorobiphenyls (CBs) in sediments is largely dependent on the freely dissolved concentration of these pollutants. However, measuring these is challenging, due to the low concentratio... Read More about Bioavailability of organic contaminants in sediments..

Passive sampling: partition coefficients for a silicone rubber reference phase. (2007)
Journal Article
YATES, K., DAVIES, I., WEBSTER, L., POLLARD, P., LAWTON, L. and MOFFAT, C. 2007. Passive sampling: partition coefficients for a silicone rubber reference phase. Journal of environmental monitoring [online], 9(10), pages 1116-1121. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1039/B706716J

Silicone rubber sheeting can be used as a passive sampling device for hydrophobic organic contaminants in the environment to determine the available concentrations in water and sediments. Reliable sampler–water partition coefficients are required to... Read More about Passive sampling: partition coefficients for a silicone rubber reference phase..
