Colloids and dissolved organics : role in membrane and depth filtration / Gary G. Leppard and Jacques Buffle.: En13-5/05-182E-PDF

"Filters are important for water purification and as a research tool for the isolation of environmentally significant colloids and soluble organic molecules. The design of filters must become increasingly more sophisticated to make them more versatile in nature and more adaptable to new applications. This brief but comprehensive overview on the interactions between filters, colloids and dissolved organics was prepared, at the request of The Encyclopedia of Water, to feature the nature of filter/water interactions relevant to improved filter design. Noted is recent NWRI research on the use of nanotechnology to identify nano-scale biofoulants on membrane filters"--Abstract.
