Project Type MQP Submission date 2012-04-24 Authors Miranda Aufiero, CH Caitlin Elyse Butler, CM Jenna Leigh Jaser, CM URN E-project-042412-232657 Title An Analysis of Methods for Detecting Triclosan and Removal of Triclosan from Water Using Activated Carbon and Zeolites Advisors Brodeur, Drew R, CH Thompson, Robert W., CM Availability unrestricted
With the growing popularity of triclosan in consumer products, the levels of wastewater contamination have heightened concerns about potentially harmful effects to public health and the environment. The goal of this project was to determine if adsorption onto zeolites or activated carbon is a viable method of removal of triclosan from wastewater. HPLC was used for determination of the concentration of triclosan in water both before and after adsorption with various zeolites and activated carbons. Many of the tested adsorbents, such as zeolite Y1, zeolite beta, and activated carbon, were found to be effective at the removal of triclosan.
