We conducted this research in order to investigate the potential of a new material called glass pumice for use as a microorganism immobilization carrier to improve aquaculture pond water quality. The pH adjustment capacity and the Rhodopseudomonas palustris P1 cell adsorption capacity of glass pumice were measured. The immobilized Rps. palustris P1 and the free sample were compared to determine which had an enhanced NH -N and NO -N removal efficiency. The results showed that glass pumice significantly affected the pH of the acid solution (P < 0.05); the pH increased from 3.0 ± 0.08 to 7.21 ± 0.13 in 12 h. Rps. palustris P1 adsorption to glass pumice was rapid and reached equilibrium within 60 min. The Langmuir adsorption parameter data showed that glass pumice had a higher affinity for Rps. palustris P1 than SiO powder, with an adsorption capacity of 4.02 × 10 cells g . The maximum NH -N and NO -N removal rates by immobilized Rps. palustris P1 were 134.82 ± 0.67 % and 93.68 ± 0.14 % higher than those of non-immobilized P1, respectively. Based on the above results, we propose that glass pumice is potential as a microorganism carrier material in aquaculture water treatment. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

This study is comparing between the Silver Diamine Fluoride after minimal caries removal versus glass ionomer in permanent teeth with open apex
Mechanical removal of a small amount of tooth structure (not more than a few tenths of a millimeter in depth) to eliminate superficial enamel discoloration defects not successfully removed by bleaching techniques. A common abrasive is a mixture of pumice and hydrochloric acid.
Composite materials composed of an ion-leachable glass embedded in a polymeric matrix. They differ from GLASS IONOMER CEMENTS in that partially silanized glass particles are used to provide a direct bond to the resin matrix and the matrix is primarily formed by a light-activated, radical polymerization reaction.
Fluoride-releasing restorative materials made by the sintering of metal (usually silver) particles to glass ionomer powder. Glass ionomers are fluoride-releasing cements that are not very durable. Sintering of the metal particles is a means of improving those physical properties that will make the glass ionomer cement more durable.
A polymer obtained by reacting polyacrylic acid with a special anion-leachable glass (alumino-silicate). The resulting cement is more durable and tougher than others in that the materials comprising the polymer backbone do not leach out.
