    • Antimicrobial Applications of Electroactive PVK-SWNT Nanocomposites 

      Ahmed, Farid; Santos, Catherine M.; Vergara, Regina Aileen May V.; Tria, Maria Celeste R.; Advincula, Rigoberto C.; Rodrigues, Debora F. (Environmental Science and Technology, 11/17/2011)
      The antibacterial properties of a nanocomposite containing an electroactive polymer, polyvinyl-N-carbazole (PVK) (97 wt %), and single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNT) (3 wt %) was investigated as suspensions in water and ...
    • Antimicrobial PVK:SWNT nanocomposite coated membrane for water purification: Performance and toxicity testing 

      Ahmed, Farid; Santos, Catherine M.; Mangadlao, Joey D.; Advincula, Rigoberto C.; Rodrigues, Debora F. (Water Research, 8/1/2013)
      This study demonstrated that coated nitrocellulose membranes with a nanocomposite containing 97% (wt%) of polyvinyl-N-carbazole (PVK) and 3% (wt%) of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) (97:3 wt% ratio PVK:SWNT) achieve ...
    • Investigation of acute effects of graphene oxide on wastewater microbial community: A case study 

      Ahmed, Farid; Rodrigues, Debora F. (Journal of Hazardous Materials, 7/15/2013)
      The market for graphene-based products, such as graphene oxide (GO), is projected to reach nearly $675 million by 2020, hence it is expected that large quantities of graphene-based wastes will be generated by then. Wastewater ...
