Abstract:

The conjugated oligoelectrolyte 4,40-bis40-N,N-bis600-N,N,Ntrimethylammonium hexylamino-styrylstilbene tetraiodide DSSN has been employed to improve the performance of wastewater microbial fuel cells MFCs with respect to current generation and organic contaminant removal. The best performance was afforded by biocathode type MFCs run in the presence of DSSN. Laser scanning confocal microscopy confirmed cellular uptake of DSSN in the biofilms.
