DIONYSIOU, D. D., M. G. ANTONIOU, H. CHOI, A. A. DELACRUZ, AND J. A. SHOEMAKER. ULTRAVIOLET- AND SOLAR LIGHT-ACTIVATED NANOSTRUCTURED TIO2 PHOTOCATALYSTS: APPLICATION IN THE DESTRUCTION OF CYANOTOXINS, A GROUP OF CYANOTOXINS EMERGING DRINKING WATER CONTAMINANTS. Presented at American Chemical Society National Meeting, Chicago, IL, March 25 - 29, 2007.

Impact/Purpose:

The major objective for this task is to develop analytical methods to detect problematic cyanotoxins in water. A preconcentration/extraction procedure will be initially developed to remove interfering substances with the detection of cyanotoxins in various water matrices. These methods will be used to determine the occurrence/prevalence of cyanotoxins in water and in the cyanobacterial cell culture collection in-house, and compare with the effectiveness of innovative detection methods developed for biological toxins.

Description:

To be presented at the American Chemical Society National Meeting in Chicago, IL, March 25-29, 2007
