Doxycycline and Naproxen are among the most widely used drugs in the therapy of CoVID 19 disease found in surface water. Water scarcity in recent years has led to research to treat polluted water. One of the easy and low-cost methods for treatment is adsorption. The utilize of Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) to evacuate pharmaceutical contaminants from water sources has been considered by researchers in the last decade. In this research, HKUST-1/ZnO/SA composite with high adsorption capacity, chemical and water stability, recovery, and reuse properties has been synthesized and investigated. By adding 10 wt% of ZnO and 50 wt% of sodium alginate to HKUST-1, at 25 °C and pH = 7, the specific surface area is reduced by 60%. The parameters of drugs concentration C0 =(5,80) mg/L, time=(15,240) min, and pH= (2,12) were investigated, and the results showed that the HKUST-1/ZnO/SA is stable in water for 14 days and it can be used in 10 cycles with 80% removal efficiency. The maximum Adsorption loading of doxycycline and Naproxen upon HKUST-1/ZnO/SA is 97.58 and 80.04 mg/g, respectively. Based on the correlation coefficient (R2), the pseudo-second-order and the Langmuir isotherm models were selected for drug adsorption. The proposed mechanism of drug uptake is by MOFs, hydrogen bonding, electrostatic bonding, and acid-base interaction.

COVID-19 is an epidemic virus arising from a freshly discovered coronavirus. Most people involved with the coronavirus will experience slight to moderate respiratory disease and recover without needing particular therapy. In this work, the atomic stability of the coronavirus at different thermodynamic properties such as temperature and pressure, was studied. For this purpose, the manner of this virus by atomic precession was described with a molecular dynamics approach. For the atomic stability of coronavirus description, physical properties such as temperature, total energy, volume variation, and atomic force of this structure were reported. In molecular dynamics approach, coronavirus is precisely simulated via S, O, N, and C atoms and performed Dreiding force field to describe these atoms interaction in the virus. Simulation results show that coronavirus stability has reciprocal relation with atomic temperature and pressure. Numerically, after 2.5 ns simulation, the potential energy varies from - 31,163 to - 26,041 eV by temperature changes from 300 to 400 K. Furthermore, this physical parameter decreases to - 28,045 eV rate at 300 K and 2 bar pressure. The volume of coronavirus is another crucial parameter to the stability description of this structure. The simulation shows that coronavirus volume 92% and 14% increases by 100 K and 2 bar variation of simulation temperature and pressure, respectively.

Coronavirus causes some illnesses to include cold, COVID-19, MERS, and SARS. This virus can be transmitted through contact with different atomic matrix between humans. So, this atomic is essential in medical cases. In this work, we describe the atomic manner of this virus in contact with various metallic matrix such as Fe, Al, and steel with equilibrium molecular dynamic method. For this purpose, we reported physical properties such as temperature, total energy, distance and angle of structures, mutual energy, and volume variation of coronavirus. In this approach, coronavirus is precisely simulated by O, C, S, and N atoms and they are implemented dreiding force field. Our simulation shows that virus interaction with steel matrix causes the maximum removing of the virus from the surfaces. After 1 ns, the atomic distance between these two structures increases from 45 to 75 Å. Furthermore, the volume of coronavirus 14.62% increases after interaction with steel matrix. This atomic manner shows that coronavirus removes and destroyed with steel surface, and this metallic structure can be a promising material for use in medical applications.
