      Dhar, Priyanka; Chernyshova, Irina; Thornhill, Maria; Roelants, Sophie; Soetaert, Wim; Kota, Hanumantha Rao (Chapter, 2021)
      Yeast-derived amphiboles have attracted considerable attention for their applications in various industrial sectors. However, only a few studies on this class of surfactant have been reported to be relevant to mineral ...
    • Green foam-based methods of mineral and ion separation 

      Jain, Garima; Havskjold, Håkon; Dhar, Priyanka; Ertesvåg, Helga; Chernyshova, Irina; Kota, Hanumantha Rao (Chapter, 2020)
      We discuss an important gap in the literature on progress toward the development of green (microbial-derived) reagents in conventional (froth flotation) and emerging (foam flotation)separation methods. For comparison, we ...
