Title: Analysis of organic compounds in an urban wastewater treatment plant effluent
Author: Navalón Oltra, Sergio Alvaro Rodríguez, Maria Mercedes García Gómez, Hermenegildo
UPV Unit: Universitat Politècnica de València. Departamento de Química - Departament de Química
Issued date:
In the present work we fractioned the effluent water from an urban sewage treatment plant (USTP) of Ribarroja (Valencia, Spain) using the conventional protocol based on DAX8 and XAD4 resins. The fractions were analyzed by ...[+]
