Project

Integrated aquaculture based on sustainable water recirculating system for the Victoria Lake Basin (VICINAQUA) project

Goal: Integrated approach in order to develop a sustainable adapted aquaculture fish pond system and simplified recirculation aquaculture systems combined with a domestic sanitation system and agriculture activities for the Victoria Lake Basin area.

VicInAqua has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 689427

This study reports an efficient and practical synthetic approach for the synthesis of a particularly important class of polymerizable quaternary ammonium salts (PQASs), that is, acryloxyalkyltriethylammonium bromides (AATEABs), which may find application as antimicrobial coatings for commercial membranes with antifouling and anti-biofouling properties, to be used for wastewater treatment. The synthetic method is based on a simple two-step procedure from commercially available substrates, entirely carried out under air and without any need for chromatographic purification. All the newly synthesized AATEABs were tested for their antimicrobial activity, and the results showed that AATEABs bearing an alkyl chain of 11 and particularly 12carbon atoms possessed significant activity against Gram positive bacteria and yeast strains.
