Key concepts

Scholarcy highlights

  • The Altmetric Attention Score is a quantitative measure of the attention that a research article has received online
  • We describe the concept and demonstrate the efficacy of a novel SWNT−MWNT hybrid filter for the removal and inactivation of microbial pathogens from water
  • The filter removes all bacteria by a sieving mechanism, with the top SWNT layer providing high levels of inactivation of model bacteria, as well as microbes from river water and treated wastewater effluent
  • The dual-layer SWNT−MWNT filter lays the framework for new possibilities in point-of-use water filtration
