By Loraine, Gregory A ABSTRACT: In this paper, components of an industrial wastewater that cause operational problems during biological treatment were oxidized by UV light and hydrogen peroxide (UV/H^sub 2^O^sub 2^). Preoxidation of wastewater was shown to remove polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) and ethoxylate surfactant and increase overall biodegradability. Several UV intensities and hydrogen peroxide concentrations were tested to find optimal conditions for the complete depolymerization of PVP...

By Marshall Brain Submarines have been a little mysterious since they were invented more than two centuries ago. That's because most submarines have been owned by the military. But recently, subs have started to get friendlier. There is a growing market for personal subs, and many coastal resort areas now have tourist subs that let visitors see underwater reefs and wrecks in air-conditioned comfort. Let's take a look at how these different kinds of subs work. Any sub, from smallest to...

Squeeze a crystal of manganese oxide hard enough, and it changes from an electrical insulator to a conductive metal. In a report published online this week by the journal Nature Materials, researchers use computational modeling to show why this happens.The results represent an advance in computer modeling of these materials and could shed light on the behavior of similar minerals deep in the Earth, said Warren Pickett, professor of physics at UC Davis and an author on the study.Manganese...

By Liang, Yong-mei Jun, Ma; Liu, Wei ABSTRACT: A laboratory study demonstrated that ferrate pretreatment significantly enhanced lead and cadmium removal in alum coagulation, under the conditions of natural surface water. The enhancement of lead removal was approximately 21 to 37% by ferrate pretreatment at a dosage of 1 to 5 mg/L. The enhanced removal of cadmium by ferrate pretreatment at a dosage of 1 to 5 mg/L exceeded the removal by alum coagulation alone 2- to 12-fold. Cadmium is much...

Minerals act as oxygen reservoirs, stopping the earth from becoming a barren planet   If our planet did not have the ability to store oxygen in the deep reaches of its mantle there would probably be no life on its surface. This is the conclusion reached by scientists at the University of Bonn who have subjected the mineral majorite to close laboratory examination. Majorite normally occurs only at a depth of several hundred kilometres - under very high pressures and temperatures....

By Cha, S C The aim of this work is to investigate the corrosion behaviour of superheater materials below deposited ashes in biomass combusting atmospheres. The materials were exposed in three different settings (without deposits, with filter ash and with cyclone ash). Exposure tests were carried out with variation of water and HCl content for 360 h at 535C. The HCl addition led to higher mass losses of materials than those without HCl addition. The rate of mass loss is proportional to the...

Acid Rain
2013-04-01 10:21:17

Acid rain is any form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, meaning that is possesses high levels of hydrogen ions. It can have harmful effects on aquatic animals, plants, and infrastructure. Acid rain is caused by emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, which react with the water molecules within the atmosphere to produce acids. Nitrogen oxides can be produced naturally by lightening strikes. Sulfur dioxide can be produced naturally by volcanic eruptions. The chemicals that are...
