  • Degradation of microcystin-LR by aquatic bacteria 

    Ghimire, Buddhi Sagar (The Robert Gordon University School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2007-06)
    Microcystins are cyclic heptapeptide toxins produced by cyanobacteria. They are potentially a threat to human and domestic animals so are of worldwide interest. Microcystin-LR is stable in various environmental conditions. ...
  • The destruction of 2-methylisoborneol and geosmin using titanium dioxide photocatalysis. 

    Lawton, Linda A.; Robertson, Peter K. J.; Robertson, Russell F.; Bruce, Fiona G. (Elsevier http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/journaldescription.cws_home/523066/description#description, 2003-08-08)
    LAWTON, L., ROBERTSON, P., ROBERTSON, R. and BRUCE, F., 2003. The destruction of 2-methylisoborneol and geosmin using titanium dioxide photocatalysis. Applied Catalysis B. Environmental. Volume 44 (1) pp. 9-13
    Geosmin (GSM) and 2-methylisoborneol (MIB) are semi-volatile compounds produced by cyanobacteria in surface waters. These compounds present problems to the drinking water industry and in aquaculture because they can taint ...
  • Destruction of cyanobacterial toxins by semiconductor photocatalysis. 

    Robertson, Peter K. J.; Lawton, Linda A.; Munch, Burkhard; Rouzade, Julien (Royal Society of Chemistry http://www.rsc.org/Publishing/Journals/CC/Index.asp, 1997)
    ROBERTSON, P., LAWTON, L., MUNCH, B. and ROUZADE, J., 1997. Destruction of cyanobacterial toxins by semiconductor photocatalysis. Chemical Communications. Issue 4, pp. 393-394
    The rapid destruction of microcystin, a cyanobacterial toxin, using a titanium dioxide photocatalyst is observed; the process is extremely efficient with high concentrations of toxin completely undetectable within 10–40 ...
  • Photodynamic biocidal action of methylene blue and hydrogen peroxide on the cyanobacterium Synechococcus leopoliensis under visible light irradiation 

    McCullagh, Cathy; Robertson, Peter K. J. (Elsevier http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jphotobiol.2005.11.013, 2006-04-03)
    MCCULLAGH, C. and ROBERTSON, P., 2006. Photodynamic biocidal action of methylene blue and hydrogen peroxide on the cyanobacterium Synechococcus leopoliensis under visible light irradiation. Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology. B. Biology, 83 (1), pp. 63-68
    Biofilm growth on stone surfaces is a significant contributing factor to stone biodeterioration. Current market based biocides are hazardous to the environment and to public health. We have investigated the photo-dynamic ...
