Study of electrophotocatalytic water disinfenction
Cisáriková, Barbora ; Zita, Jiří (referee) ; Veselá, Mária (advisor)
This bachelor thesis was focused on the photocatalytic disinfection of water with titanium dioxide applied to the working electrode. The experiment was conducted under normal conditions, with the application of UV-radiation with intensity of 40 W/m2 and with UV radiation and of 1 V electrical voltage at the same time. Each part of the experiment was run for 60 and 120 minutes. The microbicidal effect was monitored on Escherichia coli bacteria.
Preparation and characterization of biodegradable composites based on polyhydroxyalkanoates and coffee grounds
Cisáriková, Barbora ; Němcová, Andrea (referee) ; Kovalčík, Adriána (advisor)
This diploma thesis was focused on the preparation and characterization of biodegradable composites based on poly-3-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) and spent coffee grounds (SCG). The aim was to prepare biocomposites based on PHB and coffee grounds. Biocomposites were prepared by solution casting in chloroform. Films with a thickness of about 150-200 µm were prepared with the addition of 20% unmodified and modified coffee grounds. The PHB/SCG films were modified by an addition of a plasticizer and a crosslinking agent or by blending with polybutylene adipate terephthalate (PBAT). The thermal properties of the films were determined by differential scanning calorimetry. The compatibility filler/polymer matrix compatibility was assessed morphologically with the naked eye. It has been found that the direct addition of spent coffee grounds to the PHB is not suitable due to the deterioration of the morphology of the film surfaces and the formation of aggregates. The compatibility between the spent coffee grounds and the PHB was improved after the addition of the plasticizer and the crosslinking agent. However, the highest compatibility between SCG and PHB was achieved in the case of esterified coffee grounds. Another way to improve the resulting morphological properties of the films thus prepared was to use coffee grounds fractions.
