Engineers devise new method to remove harmful E. coli from water

Escherichia coli. Credit: Rocky Mountain Laboratories, NIAID, NIH Engineers at Monash University have come up with an improved method to remove potentially deadly bacteria, such as E. coli, from water using graphitic carbon nitride and sunlight. The international team, led by Professor Xiwang Zhang in Monash University’s Department of Chemical Engineering, combined graphitic carbon nitride […]
