Batch and column studies on heavy metal removal using a local zeolitic tuff
Ion exchange is considered to be one of the most cost effective methods if low cost ion exchangers such as natural zeolites are used in waste water treatment. In this study, a zeolitic tuff rich in clinoptilolite from ...
Clinoptilolite supported rutile TiO2 composites: Synthesis, characterization, and photocatalytic activity on the degradation of terephthalic acid
Clinoptilolite supported rutile TiO2 composites were synthesized for the enhancement of its photocatalytic performance in the degradation of the aqueous terephthalic acid solution under UVC illumination by the increase in ...
Characterization and dehydration behavior of a natural, ammonium hydroxide, and thermally treated zeolitic tuff
(Taylor & Francis, 2011-04)
Aqueous NH4OH-treated and subsequently calcined forms of local natural zeolitic tuff were characterized by different techniques including scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray powder diffraction, inductively coupled ...
Investigation of structural properties of clinoptilolite rich zeolites in simulated digestion conditions and their cytotoxicity against Caco-2 cells in vitro
The use of the clinoptilolite rich natural zeolites in biomedical applications such as in anticancer therapy, drug or drug support systems and as nutritive supplement is highly dependent on their behavior in digestive ...
Kinetic and equilibrium studies of adsorption of β-glucuronidase by clinoptilolite-rich minerals
The adsorption of the bacterial β-glucuronidase (GUS) enzyme, which is thought to be responsible for the production of reactive metabolites related to some diseases and cancer development, by clinoptilolite-rich mineral ...
