The effect of a new surfactant obtained with reacting cysteine and octanoyl (C8) was investigated in ion flotation removal of low levels of chromium ions from aqueous solution. The synthesised amino acid-based single-chain surfactant shows high water solubility and causes extensive foaming in a typical flotation chamber. In an ion flotation process, this surfactant was able to remove 99.8% of the 5 ppm strontium present in the contaminated water, in a simple, single-stage physiochemical process.

Mojtaba Taseidifar is an Iranian PhD student attending University of New South Wales, Australia with thesis entitled “Novel Water Technologies” in research group of Professor Richard Mark Pashley. Moji’s research area generally evolve re-using wastewater, cavitation prevention and seawater desalination, which all are of paramount importance to tackle the problems associated with water pollution and shortage. He is very interested to mingle with the experts/researchers to find out about their work in order to build up his future research.
