All these procedures are slow and cumbersome. Therefore, the use of additives, which maintain porosity under drying in air, will be advantageous. 1 Use of Cationic Surfactant (CTAB) Micelles as Nanoparticle Stabilizers Ordered mesoporous inorganic materials can be produced with a tailored pore size distribution by sol–gel techniques and using a variety of micelles of surfactant molecules as templates [91]. , silica, alumina, titania, zirconia, mixed oxides), by condensation of inorganic species around the arrays of self-assembled aggregates of surfactant molecules in water [92].

The membrane filter was removed and placed on a Petri dish, and was sealed with tape. Incubation was done at 35°C for 30 h. Dark-colored (pink) areas representing the colonies were used for counting under a dissecting microscope. The density was counted as Coliform/100 ml = (No. of colonies counted) × 100/sample size (ml) A geometric mean was taken while calculating the average coliform density. A dehydrated commercial media was used. 5 to 7 mg/l, which was a significant reduction. 5 mg/l. 4 mg/l.

The water produced is healthy and free of pathogens. 2 Photocatalytic Treatment In the processes mentioned above, trace metals such as mercury (Hg), chromium (Cr), lead (Pb), and several heavy metals such as cadmium (Cd) and arsenic (As) may go undetected. Also, several organic compounds such as alcohol, carboxylic acid, phenolic derivatives, or mineral acids may be encountered. Dyes may be released in water by textile industries. In addition, organochlorine pesticides such as lindane, p,p′-DDT (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane), and methoxychlor are present in the environment.
