[Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs or nanosilver) material has been receiving increasing attention in the recent decade. For example, AgNPs and its application has been studied and exploited to a large extent. In fact, it was reported that nanosilver had a history of approximately 120 years of usage,...
[Chemicals used in this study were purchased from Sigma-Aldrich, US, unless otherwise specified. Deionized water (DI water) used throughout this study was 18 mΩ pure water produced by MilliQ water purification system (Milipore, US).]
[TEM images of the nanosilver are shown in Fig. 4.1. It is noted that the com-AgNPs had severe aggregation with size ranging from 70 nm (inset of Fig. 4.1a) to several hundred nanometres (Fig. 4.1a) while chem-AgNPs had smaller size, ranging from 20 to 100 nm (Fig. 4.1b). Compared with study of...
[This goal of this study was to systematically evaluate the feasibility of applying AgNPs as an alternative disinfectant in drinking water treatment process.]
