Core-shell molecularly imprinted polymers on magnetic yeast for the removal of sulfamethoxazole from water

In this work, magnetic yeast (MY) was produced through an in situ one-step method. Then, MY was used as the core and the antibiotic sulfamethoxazole (SMX) as the template to produce highly selective magnetic yeast-molecularly&#...

Upcycling spent brewery grains through the production of carbon adsorbents: application to the removal of carbamazepine from water

Spent brewery grains, a by-product of the brewing process, were used as precursor of biochars and activated carbons to be applied to the removal of pharmaceuticals from water. Biochars were obtained by pyrolysis of the raw...

Optimizing microwave-assisted production of waste-based activated carbons for the removal of antibiotics from water

This work aimed at the microwave-assisted production of activated carbon (AC) from primary paper mill sludge (PS) for the adsorption of antibiotics from water. Production conditions, namely pyrolysis temperature, pyrolysis time and activ...

Estudo de modificação de pastas celulósicas para aplicações não papeleiras

Seguindo a tendência atual da substituição dos plásticos, surge a possibilidade de utilização da pasta celulósica para produtos absorventes de higiene, como fraldas descartáveis e produtos de incontinência. Foram estudadas modificações física...
