Summary
A combination of antimicrobial nanofibers and activated carbon were produced and evaluated in a portable point-of-use filter system. The antimicrobial nanofibers were fabricated by incorporating a biocide in a poly(vinyl) alcohol solution and electrospun onto tea sachet material. The effectiveness of the filter was evaluated by its stability in water and number of microorganisms filtered out. Viable cell numbers of Klebsiella pneumoniae Xen 39, Staphylococcus aureusXen 36, Escherichia coli Xen 14, Pseudomonas aeruginosa Xen 5 and Salmonella typhimurium Xen 26 were reduced by 8 logs after filtration. Bacterial numbers from a polluted river were reduced by 6 logs for up to 7 L of water filtrational though swelling of nanofibers was already observed after filtration of 5 L of water. The antimicrobial activity of the nanofibers was reduced after soaking in water for 24 h. This low-cost purification system provides a safe and practical means of water purification in areas with poor sanitation, especially in rural communities
