Abstract

Emerging pollutants such as natural and manufactured chemicals, insecticides, pesticides, surfactants, and other biological agents such as personal care products, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and many industrial discharges hamper the aquatic environment. Nanomaterials and microplastics, among the...

Abstract

In this study, the catalytic activity of the modified microbial cellulose/Fe3O4 (MMC/ Fe3O4) composite was studied for tetracycline (TC) degradation and mineralization in a three-dimensional electro-Fenton system (3D-EF). The MC/Fe3O4 was modified at 400°C for 60 min. The MMC/ Fe3O4 was fully...

Abstract

In many countries the use of lead-based ammunition is prevalent, and results in exposure and poisoning of waterfowl and other species of birds. In waterfowl hunting areas large quantities of spent shot may be deposited in wetland and terrestrial habitats. These pellets can undergo transformations,...

Abstract

Iron sulfide (FeS) has been widely used to reduce toxic Cr(VI) into Cr(III) in anoxic aquatic environments, where pH could strongly influence Cr(VI) removal. However, it remains unclear how pH regulates the fate and transformation of FeS under oxic conditions and the immobilization of Cr(VI). The...

Abstract

Triclosan (TCS) is omnipresent in the environment and has drawn increasing attention due to its potential adverse effects on human health. Direct photolysis of TCS readily occurs, especially in the surface layers of waters that receive abundant ultraviolet radiation during the daytime. However,...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the occurrence of carbapenemase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae (CP-KP) in aquatic ecosystems and to perform a genomic analysis of a representative strain carrying the blaNDM-1 gene. Results showed that 4 CP-KP strains belonging to the novel sequence type...

Abstract

Microplastics (MPs) are relatively stable and not easy to degrade, which poses a serious threat to the environment and biological health. MPs pollution is also listed as a global environmental problem alongside global climate change, ozone layer depletion, etc. Studying the environmental behavior...

Abstract

Introduction: Mono-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (MEHP) represents a toxicological risk for marine organisms due to its widespread presence in aquatic environments. Methods. MEHP effects on cell viability, cell death and genotoxicity were investigated on the DLEC cell line, derived from early embryos of ...
