York researchers invent “sweet” solution to kill E. coli in drinking water. It is a novel paper-based water treatment technique, DipTreat, which uses glucose to fish E. coli from water,
trap them within the porous paper matrix, and kill them using the
antimicrobial properties of Moringa oleifera seed extract. It appeared as a cover article in Environmental Science: Water Research & Technology .
