A review of coagulation explaining its definition, mechanism, coagulant types, and optimization models; RSM, and ANN

The textile business is one of the most hazardous industries since it produces several chemicals, such as dyes, which are released into water streams with ef-fluents. For the survival of the planet's life and the advancement of humanity, water is a crucial resource. One of the anthropogenic activities that pollute and consume water is the textile industry. Thus, the purpose of the current effort

Water Importance and Pollution Sources—Recommended Limits of Pollutants

There are many water resources like rivers, seas, rains, and groundwater, which can be used in different sectors such as agricultural, domestic, and industrial uses. Therefore, different wastewater effluents with different properties are produced depending on their source. Industrial wastewater is one of the most harmful effluents due to the presence of toxic pollutants such as heavy metals, dyes

Applied Techniques for Wastewater Treatment

Polluted water is one of the significant challenges facing the world nowadays, especially with the noticed water shortage recorded in the last period. Different treatment methods, physicochemical and biological, were presented for pollutant removal from polluted wastewater. This review discusses the treatment methods starting from the biological part to help reduction of organics, which are solids

Review of activated carbon adsorbent material for textile dyes removal: Preparation, and modelling

Water contamination with colours and heavy metals from textile effluents has harmed the ecology and food chain, with mutagenic and carcinogenic effects on human health. As a result, removing these harmful chemicals is critical for the environment and human health. Various standard physicochemical and biological treatment technologies are used; however, there are still some difficulties. Adsorption

Detection and Identification of Adulteration in Vinegar Samples Based on Reversed-Phase High-Performance Liquid Chromatographic (RP-HPLC) Strategies

Adulteration of vinegar to gain economic benefit has become a common practice in recent years. RP-HPLC strategies were proposed for the assurance of the concentration of acetic acid, rare organic acids (tartaric, malic, lactic and citric), and acetaldehyde in Egyptian vinegar samples. The flow rate was 0.5 mL/min using UV detection at 210 and 365 nm for organic acid and acetaldehyde, respectively

An eco-concerned development of a fast, precise and economical spectrophotometric assay for the antiviral drug simeprevir based on ion-pair formation

Simeprevir sodium (SMV) is one of the antiviral drugs used for the treatment of virus C. The current strategy develops and validates a new eco-concerned tool for its quantification in the pure and pharmaceutical formulations. Sulfonephthalein acid dyes were used for this purpose, applying visible analyses based on ion-pair formation. A linear relation between the absorbed signal and the drug

Evaluation of Different Sudan Dyes in Egyptian Food Samples Utilizing Liquid Chromatography/Tandem Mass Spectrometry

A sensitive and a precise method was developed for the quantification of different Sudan dyes in some Egyptian food samples. They were analyzed utilizing two-fragment ion transition under multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) mode. Separation was carried out on Kinetex 2.6u C18 100 A (75 mm × 4.6 mm) phenomenex using isocratic elution with 10:90% water and acetonitrile containing 2.0 mmol/L ammonium

Pre-emergency Alert IoT System-based on Wearable Devices for Diabetic Patient

According to World Health Organization (WHO), there are more than 400 million diabetic adults worldwide. In Egypt, only there are about 8 million diabetic people, and the diabetes prevalence rate is estimated to be 13.3% by 2025, according to WHO. In most cases, the diabetic person requires regular visits to the hospital for health checks. However, due to the COVID pandemic, it has become risky
