Abstract

A significant reduction in the E. coli content of saline and phosphate buffer solutions is achieved by electroadsorption of the bacteria on a positively-charged porous carbon electrode mounted in an electrochemical flow cell. Desorption of live bacteria is induced upon reversal of the electrical double-layer charge of the electrode.
