Adsorption of sulfonamides and tylosin on two powdered activated carbons
"Sulfonamides and macrolides are commonly used in medicine or confined animal feeding operations (CAFO). According to USGS stream survey, sulfonamides or macrolides are among the 30 most frequently detected organic contaminants in drinking water sources. Concerns about the antibiotic residues and antibiotic resistance have drawn more attentions. Options for removing antibiotics using conventional water treatment processes vary with different situations. Powered activated carbon (PAC) is one of the most promising effective technologies for the treatment of the antibiotics. The purpose of this investigations was to develop isotherms on two common PACs for sulfamethazine (SMZN), sulfathiazole (STZL), sulfamethiazole (SMZL), sulfamethoxazole (SMXZ), and tylosin (TYLS) and generate the coefficients of linear Freundlich and linear Langmuir models. Additionally, the impacts of NOM in surface water and different pHs of aqueous phase were observed"--Abstract, leaf iv.
