Developing new ways to remove or inactivate pathogens in water

  • Water quality
  • Waterborne Diseases
  • Water treatment

Waterborne pathogens are a major health threat and must be eliminated to guarantee safe usage of water for potable purposes. For this purpose, a new carbon-based nanomaterial composed of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and iron oxides was constructed for bacterial inactivation.
