Redox chemistry and natural organic matter NOM: Geochemists' dream, analytical chemists' nightmare. Natural organic matter NOM is an inherently complex mixture of polyfunctional organic molecules. Variabilities in NOM composition and chemistry make studies of its redox chemistry particularly challenging, and details of NOM -mediated redox reactions are only partially understood.

This is in large part due to the analytical difficulties associated with NOM characterization and the wide range of reagents and experimental systems used to study NOM redox reactions. This chapter provides a summary of the ongoing efforts to provide a coherent comprehension of aqueous redox chemistry involving NOM and of techniques for chemical characterization of NOM. It also describes some attempts to confirm the roles of different structural moieties in redox reactions.
In addition, we discuss some of the operational parameters used to describe NOM redox capacities and redox states, and describe nomenclature of NOM redox chemistry. Several relatively facile experimental methods applicable to predictions of the NOM redox activity and redox states of NOM samples are discussed, with special attention to the proposed use of fluorescence spectroscopy to predict relevant redox characteristics of NOM samples.

Photochemical fate of beta-blockers in NOM enriched waters. Beta-blockers, prescribed for the treatment of high blood pressure and for long-term use after a heart attack, have been detected in surface and ground waters. This study examines the photochemical fate of three beta-blockers, atenolol, metoprolol, and nadolol.
Hydrolysis accounted for minor losses of these beta-blockers in the pH range 4— The rate of direct photolysis at pH 7 in a solar simulator varied from 6. However, the addition of a natural organic matter NOM isolate enhanced the photochemical loss of all three compounds. Atenolol was chosen for more detailed investigation, with the photoproducts identified by LC—MS analysis. The results suggested that electron-transfer could be an important mechanism in photochemical fate of beta-blockers in the presence of NOM.

Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Photochemical degradation of beta-blockers in the simulated natural waters. The combined effect of pH and calcium on the interactions of nonozonated and ozonated natural organic matter NOM with nanoscale TiO2 was investigated. It was demonstrated that depending on pH and TiO2 loading, the adsorption of NOM species is controlled by either the availability of divalent cations or by preozonation of NOM. Non-XDLVO interactions such as intermolecular bridging by calcium were hypothesized to be responsible for the observed adsorption behavior.
Adsorption data proved to be highly predictive of the permeate flux performance. Les faits porteurs d'avenir Panorama Presages for the Future. La demande mondiale est toujours en forte croissance.

NOM characterization and removal at six Southern African water treatment plants. Full Text Available Organic pollution is a major concern during drinking water treatment. Major challenges attributed to organic pollution include the proliferation of pathogenic micro-organisms, prevalence of toxic and physiologically disruptive organic micro-pollutants, and quality deterioration in water distribution systems.
A major component of organic pollution is natural organic matter NOM. The operational mechanisms of most unit processes are well understood. However, their interaction with NOM is still the subject of scientific research. This paper takes the form of a meta-study to capture some of the experiences with NOM monitoring and analysis at a number of Southern African Water Treatment Plants.
It is written from the perspective of practical process selection, to try and coax some pointers from the available data for the design of more detailed pilot work. Fractionation of the DOC based on biodegradability and molecular weight distribution was done at a water treatment plant in Namibia. A third fractionation technique using ion exchange resins was used to assess the impact of ozonation on DOC.
The more detailed characterization techniques showed that different unit processes preferentially remove different NOM fractions. Therefore these techniques provide better information for process design and optimisation than the DOC measurement which is routinely done during full scale operation at these water treatment plants.

As the worldwide usage of nanoparticles in commercial products continues to increase, there is growing concern about the environmental risks that nanoparticles pose to biological systems, including potential damage to cellular membranes. A detailed understanding of how different types of nanoparticles behave in environmentally relevant conditions is imperative for predicting and mitigating potential membrane-associated toxicities.

Herein, we investigated the adsorption of two popular nanoparticles silver and buckminsterfullerene onto biomimetic supported lipid bilayers of varying membrane charge positive and negative. The quartz crystal microbalance-dissipation QCM-D measurement technique was employed to track the adsorption kinetics. Particular attention was focused on understanding how natural organic matter NOM coatings affect nanoparticle-bilayer interactions. Both types of nanoparticles preferentially adsorbed onto the positively charged bilayers, although NOM coatings on the nanoparticle and lipid bilayer surfaces could either inhibit or promote adsorption in certain electrolyte conditions.
While past findings showed that NOM coatings inhibit membrane adhesion, our findings demonstrate that the effects of NOM coatings are more nuanced depending on the type of nanoparticle and electrolyte condition. Taken together, the results demonstrate that NOM coatings can modulate the lipid membrane interactions of various nanoparticles, suggesting a possible way to improve the environmental safety of nanoparticles. A study of seasonal effects on metal- NOM interactions and the This paper reports on a study of calcium carbonate CaCO3 precipitation potentials of cooling water CW at Eskom power stations.
It is important to understand the complexation reaction between calcium and dissolved organic carbon Ca-DOC because the natural organic matter NOM affects the precipitation potentials Full Text Available Natural organic matter NOM in drinking water supplies significantly impacts on water supply quality and treatment, due to observed reactivity with many dissolved and particulate species. Several technologies are used nowadays to remove NOM from the water supply. The evolution of water-related directives, and progressively more restrictive standards for drinking water, however, call for the investigation of advanced, more efficient, and cost-effective water treatment processes.
This paper contains a brief overview on the state-of-the-art methods for NOM removal from supply waters, and describes the experimental application of an advanced technology, tested and validated at the pilot scale on the water supply source of a town in Poland. The key to success of this type of process is a correct setup with the identification of optimal types and dosages of reagents.
Based on the results of the tests conducted it is foreseeable that this technology could be used onsite, not only for removal of NOM , but also of other hard-to-tackle pollutants potentially contained in the freshwater supply and not presently considered. Report made on behalf of the commission of foreign affairs about the project of law, adopted by the Senate, giving permission to the approval of the agreement between the French government and the international organization for thermonuclear fusion energy ITER, relative to the head office of ITER organization and to the privileges and immunities of ITER organization in the French territory; Rapport fait au nom de la commission des affaires etrangeres sur le projet de loi, adopte par le senat, autorisant l'approbation de l'accord entre le Gouvernement de la Republique francaise et l'Organisation internationale ITER pour l'energie de fusion relatif au siege de l'Organisation ITER et aux privileges et immunites de l'Organisation ITER sur le territoire francais.
The agreement signed in Paris between these seven parties on November 21, entrusted the international organization ITER with the realization of this project. The implications of the ITER project are enormous both in their scientific and in their economical aspects. France has a particular position in this project since the head office of ITER organisation is sited at Saint-Paul-lez-Durance and the tokamak will be built at Cadarache.
The approval of this agreement is the object of this project of law. The document presents first the principle, challenge and stakes of the ITER project and the long negotiations that have led to chose France for the setting up of the research facility. Then, it presents the agreement of November 7, , which fixes the general framework of the conditions necessary to the achievement of the project. The agreement comprises the classical rules, privileges and immunities of any international organization sited on the French ground, plus some more specific dispositions in particular in the domain of management of the wastes generated by the facility.
Central Au on Au collisions. France ; Basrak, Z. In nucleus-nucleus collisions the initial relative kinetic energy of target and projectile is available for internal excitation of the interacting system; it is however still not well established to what extent local equilibrium and thermalisation occur. Local equilibrium is of interest to derive, within the formalism of transport equations and of the equation of state, EOS , general properties of compressed and excited nuclear matter.
Such approach describes in relatively simple terms the complex many body interactions occuring within extended baryonic and hadronic or quark matter.
For a basic microscopic understanding it is highly desirable to investigate the elementary in-medium interactions in relation to the free elementary processes. Excitation function measurements of central collisions between the heaviest available nuclei like Au on Au , supply the best ground for such studies: The consideration presented here of energy thermalisation and of an expanding system clusterizing at freeze-out in a situation close to the liquid gas phase transition can be of interest to astrophysics as well as to the quark gluon plasma deconfinement studied in nucleus-nucleus collisions at the higher energy regime of CERN and Brookhaven.
Atomic force microscopy AFM was used to study interaction forces between four Natural Organic Matter NOM samples of different physicochemical characteristics and origins and mica surface at a wide range of ionic strength. All NOM samples were strongly adsorbed on positively charged iron oxide-coated silica colloidal probe. Cross-sectioning by focused ion beam milling technique and elemental mapping by energy-filtered transmission electron microscopy indicated coating completeness of the NOM -coated colloidal probes. AFM-generated force-distance curves were analyzed to elucidate the nature and mechanisms of these interacting forces.
Electrostatics and steric interactions were important contributors to repulsive forces during approach, although the latter became more influential with increasing ionic strength. Retracting force profiles showed a NOM adhesion behavior on mica consistent with its physicochemical characteristics. Humic-like substances, referred as the least hydrophilic NOM fraction, i. However, adhesion force increased with increasing ionic strength, suggesting double layer compression.
Conversely, polysaccharide-like substances showed high adhesion to mica. Hydrogen-bonding between hydroxyl groups on polysaccharide-like substances and highly electronegative elements on mica was suggested as the main adsorption mechanism, where the adhesion force decreased with increasing ionic strength. Results from this investigation indicated that all NOM samples retained their characteristics after the coating procedure. The experimental approach followed in this study can potentially be extended to investigate interactions between NOM and clean or fouled membranes as a function of NOM physicochemical characteristics and solution chemistry.
The role of non-operative management NOM in blunt hepatic trauma. Full Text Available Background: NOM in blunt hepatic trauma is the preferred treatment in otherwise stable patients. To evaluate the role of NOM in blunt hepatic trauma, avoiding unnecessary surgery. Forty-four patients who presented with blunt hepatic trauma were admitted to the Emergency Unit. The patients were evaluated clinically. Abdominal computerized tomography was done to all hemodynamically stable patients and who were stabilized by the initial resuscitation. Initially, all patients were treated conservatively and the patients who needed laparotomy later were considered as failure of NOM.
Liver injuries due to penetrating causes were excluded. An informed consent was taken from each patient. Blunt trauma was the mechanism of injury in 44 patients The peak age was between 20 and 30 years. The male to female ratio was The mean admission systolic pressure was lower in the NOM failure group 90 vs. The factors that can suspect failure of NOM were the development of hemodynamic instability or the presence of associated injury that mandates immediate exploration.
Two types of natural surface water Schie canal and Biesbosch reservoir were tested to confirm the improvement of demineralized water backwashing on fouling control, and LC-OCD analysis was conducted on Schie canal water to find out which fraction of NOM was removed with those backwashes.
