Abstract

One of the biggest challenges of the public water supply is to provide drinking water free of microorganisms or pathogens from waste by-products generated during the water treatment. Among the various types of pathogen the inactivation of the mycobacteria has been a challenge, since they present as ambiguous characteristics of biofilm formation in water, to give a huge resistance to conventional treatments and are responsible for a wide range of infections. This project aims to investigate the potential of the technique of photoelectrocatalysis as a method of disinfecting water. To this aim is to develop electrodes for Ti/TiO2 in the form of nanotubes with and without doping with Ag and apply them to treat the type of mycobacteria: M. smegmatis, M. fortuitum, M. Chelonae, M. avium, M. kansasii and M. turberculosis. The performance of the method will be evaluated are testing its effectiveness against the inactivation of mycobacteria under UV and sunlight in the presence of chloride and sulfate as supporting electrolyte monitoring is the kinetic antimycobacterial testing and training of sub-products using conventional analytical chemical methods .
