Article English OPEN
Eduardo Alberto López-Maldonado; Mercedes Teresita Oropeza-Guzmán; Adrián Ochoa-Terán;

Efficiency of coagulation-flocculation process used for semiconductor wastewater treatment was improved by selecting suitable conditions (pH, polyelectrolyte type, and concentration) through zeta potential measurements. Under this scenario the zeta potential, ζ, is the... View more
