Abstract

Zero valent iron (ZVI) has been extensively studied for reductive degradation of a host of organic pollutants including nitrobenzene (NB) in the water phase. However, little is known about the effectiveness for degrading soil-adsorbed NB, for which stabilized ZVI nanoparticles are often required to ...

Abstract

In first part of the paper a review is given on fractionation methodologies by sequential extraction methodologies applied for risk assessment of environmental pollution by potentially toxic elements (PTE). Main sources of PTE release are the mining-, industrial-, agri-food production-, traffic-...

Abstract

For risk assessment of potentially toxic element (PTE) pollution of sediments and soils the fractionation by sequential extraction procedures are applied which require longtime leaching-shaking periods to achieve the dissolution equilibria. In this work an attempt is described for reduction the...

Abstract

Among the different pharmaceuticals present in soil and water ecosystems as micro-contaminants, considerable attention has been paid to antibiotics, since their increasing use and the consequent development of multi-resistant bacteria pose serious risks to human and veterinary health. Moreover,...

Abstract

Cytochrome P450cam (a camphor hydroxylase) from the soil bacterium Pseudomonas putida shows potential importance in environmental applications such as the degradation of chlorinated organic pollutants. Seven P450cam mutants generated from Sequence Saturation Mutagenesis (SeSaM) and isolated by...

Abstract

We examined the feasibility of using handheld mid-infrared (MIR) Fourier-Transform infrared (FT-IR) instrumentation for detecting and analysing cyanide (CN) contamination in field contaminated soils. Cyanide spiking experiments were first carried out, in the laboratory, to test the sensitivity of...

Abstract

Currently, environmental pollution by heavy metals is a global problem. Therefore, it is crucial to develop effective detection techniques to determine the levels of heavy metal contamination in various mediums. Voltammetry is a highly sensitive electrochemical method used for the in situ detection ...

Abstract

In this present study, magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) nanocomposites modified with polyaniline (PANI) coated newly synthesised dicationic ionic liquid (DICAT) forming MNP-PANI-DICAT were successfully synthesised as new generation material for magnetic solid phase extraction (MSPE). MNP-PANI-DICAT...

Abstract

Regulations for pesticides in soil are important for controlling human health risk; humans can be exposed to pesticides by ingesting soil, inhaling soil dust, and through dermal contact. Previous studies focused on analyses of numerical standard values for pesticides and evaluated the same...

Abstract

An aided phytostabilisation strategy consisting of several composite amendments of iron sulphate and organic materials combined with Lupinus albus L. (white lupin) was evaluated for remediation of an As- and Cu-contaminated soil. Iron sulphate was combined with lime, paper mill sludge (PS), olive...
