Title: Enhanced Photocatalytic Solar Disinfection of Water as Effective Intervention Against Waterborne Diarrheal Diseases in Developing Countries
University of Cincinnati students and collaborators from Ireland and Mexico are studying novel nanotechnological methods for use in photocatalytic point-of-use reactors for water disinfection in isolated rural zones in Mexico. The students are also documenting health benefits associated with the consumption of the treated drinking water.
