Abstract

Nano-scale lead dioxide (nPbO2) is an industrial metal oxide nanoparticle that can be also formed as a corrosion by-product from chlorination of Pb-containing plumbing materials. nPbO2 governs release of toxic lead ion in drinking water and receiving organisms; however, its modes of toxic action...

Abstract

Microalgae biotechnology is a promising pathway to cope with CO2 emission and energy crisis due to high CO2 fixation rate and lipids productivity. However, bottlenecks of high energy cost, low photosynthetic efficiency and poor economic feasibility severely hinder its commercialization....

Abstract

Fe(III) oxides are ubiquitous electron acceptors for anaerobic bioremediation, although their bioavailability was limited due to the passivation of secondary mineralization products. Here we found the solid S0 can be added to improve their bioavailability. Using lepidocrocite (γ-FeOOH), acetate and ...

Abstract

There is widespread concern about pollution of freshwater ecosystems caused by heavy metals. The aim of this study was to determine how humic acid affected the bioavailability of Cu at a range of Cu concentrations in water. The concentrations of selected Cu species were characterized by...

Abstract

Due to the multiplex absorption barrier in the gastrointestinal tract, the low oral bioavailability of many lipophilic chemicals limits their range of applications. Biomimetic nanovesicles offered unique advantages in overcoming multiple barriers to oral absorption and improving the oral...

Abstract

The atmospheric wet deposition has been recognized as a significant allochthonous source of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) to the ocean. However, few studies have examined the biolability of rainwater dissolved organic matter (DOM) at the molecular level. Rainwater samples were collected and...

Abstract

Microorganisms play a crucial role in the biogeochemical processes of Dissolved Organic Matter (DOM), and the properties of DOM also significantly influence changes in microbial community characteristics. This interdependent relationship is vital for the flow of matter and energy within aquatic...

Abstract

An important public concern worldwide is soil pollution caused by organophosphorus pesticides and their primary metabolites. To protect the public's health, screening these pollutants on-site and determining their soil bioavailability is important, but doing so is still challenging. This work...

Abstract

To track pollution status and bioavailability of Cu, Zn, Cd, Pb, and Ni, the current study's acid-volatile sulfide (AVS) and simultaneously extracted metals (SEM) models were compared to previous studies in Edku and Mariut lakes prior to 8 years. Sediment samples were collected in winter and summer ...
