Modeling phosphorus exchange between bottom sediment and water in tropical semiarid reservoirs. (2019)
Journal Article
MOURA, D.S., LIMA NETO, I.E., CLEMENTE, A., OLIVEIRA, S., PESTANA, C.J., APARECIDA DE MELO, M. and CAPELO-NETO, J. 2020. Modeling phosphorus exchange between bottom sediment and water in tropical semiarid reservoirs. Chemosphere [online], 246, article ID 125686. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.chemosphere.2019.125686

This study investigated phosphorus (P) dynamics in the sediment-water interface of three distinct reservoirs located in a tropical semiarid region. Sequential chemical fractioning of the P content in the sediment and controlled experiments of the sed...

Removal of microcystins from a waste stabilisation lagoon: evaluation of a packed-bed continuous flow TiO2 reactor. (2019)
Journal Article
PESTANA, C.J., HOBSON, P., ROBERTSON, P.K.J., LAWTON, L.A. and NEWCOMBE, G. 2020. Removal of microcystins from a waste stabilisation lagoon: evaluation of a packed-bed continuous flow TiO2 reactor. Chemosphere [online], 245, article number 125575. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.chemosphere.2019.125575

Photocatalysis has been shown to successfully remove microcystins (MC) in laboratory experiments. Most research to date has been performed under ideal conditions in pure or ultrapure water. In this investigation the efficiency of photocatalysis using... Read More about Removal of microcystins from a waste stabilisation lagoon: evaluation of a packed-bed continuous flow TiO2 reactor..

Daphnia magna exudates impact physiological and metabolic changes in microcystis aeruginosa. (2019)
Journal Article
SAVIC, G.B., EDWARDS, C., BRIAND, E., LAWTON, L., WIEGAND, C. and BORMANS, M. 2019. Daphnia magna exudates impact physiological and metabolic changes in microcystis aeruginosa. Toxins [online], 11(7), article number 421. Available from: https://doi.org/10.3390/toxins11070421

While the intracellular function of many toxic and bioactive cyanobacterial metabolites is not yet known, microcystins have been suggested to have a protective role in the cyanobacterial metabolism, giving advantage to toxic over nontoxic strains und...

Using cellulose polymorphs for enhanced hydrogen production from photocatalytic reforming. (2019)
Journal Article
CHANG, C., SKILLEN, N., NAGARAJAN, S., RALPHS, K., IRVINE, J.T.S., LAWTON, L. and ROBERTSON, P.K.J. 2019. Using cellulose polymorphs for enhanced hydrogen production from photocatalytic reforming. Sustainable energy and fuels [online], 3(8), pages 1971-1975. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1039/c9se00377k

Efficient energy production and waste valorisation are the most challenging fields in photocatalysis. Reported here is enhanced hydrogen production from cellulose, achieved through the conversion of cellulose I to II via a simple pretreatment step.

Exploring the potential resource recovery from pot ale utilising microalgae and novel LED photobioreactors. (2019)
Thesis
MCNERNEY, C.C. 2019. Exploring the potential resource recovery from pot ale utilising microalgae and novel LED photobioreactors. Robert Gordon University [online], PhD thesis. Available from: https://openair.rgu.ac.uk

Pot ale is a protein-rich, high-carbon and acidic (pH 3.5) by-product of the whisky industry. With 4.9 million tonnes of pot ale being produced per annum in Scotland alone, it presents a difficult disposal challenge for the industry. Pot ale has high...

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...
