Contents Notes
The purpose of the research was to explore the appropriateness of various methods for separating and characterizing municipal secondary waste effluent. After examining several methods, it was found that a combination of membrane ultrafiltration, solvent extraction, thin layer chromatography, and high resolution mass spectrometry was most appropriate. Infrared, mass, and ultraviolet spectroscopy was used to analysis the effluent fractions. High resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) shows promise for being able to obtain a great deal of specific chemical information even from still very complex mixtures.
