The rapid-desorbing fraction plays an important role in the bioavailability of organic pollutants in soil. In the present study, DDT's desorption from the cotton field soils was investigated by Tenax extraction. The results of the Tenax consecutive extraction (400 h) indicated that the rate constants were in the order of 10(-1), 10(-2), and 10(-4) h(-1) for(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effects of paeonol(Pae) on lipid peroxidational reaction and oxidational decorate of low density lipoprotein(LDL). METHOD The rat model of hyperlipidaemia was established by feeding high lipid diet with cholesterol for 6 weeks. The contents of malondialdehyde(MDA) and oxidized low density lipoprotein(OX-LDL) were measured by(More)
A Gram-negative, aerobic, non-motile bacterial strain hun6T isolated from the polluted soil near a chemical factory in northern Nanjing, China was investigated to clarify its taxonomic position. Growth of strain hun6T occurred between 10 and 45 °C (optimum, 30 °C) and between pH 6.0 and 8.0 (optimum, pH 7.0). No growth occurred at NaCl concentrations(More)
The photocatalytic degradation of rhodamine B (RhB) over NaBiO3 under visible light irradiation was investigated in this study. RhB (20 mg/L) was almost completely decolorized in 30 min in given conditions. It was found that catalyst heating temperature significantly influenced the photocatalytic activity of the catalyst in which crystal water may played an(More)
Dicofol with high impurity of DDT compounds is still widely used in agricultural practice such as cotton cultivation and becomes an important source of DDT pollution in China. In this study, investigations on the DDT residues in cotton fields from northern Jiangsu province, China were conducted. The results showed that DDTs in cotton soil were much higher(More)
Polyhalogenated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PHDDs) have become the most notorious pollutants in the environment. However, the origin of their congener-specific toxicity is not well understood. For explaining the difference in toxicity between PHDDs as well as their potencies of aryl hydrocarbon hydroxylase (AHH) and 7-ethoxyresorufin O-deethylase (EROD) induction,(More)
This work was originally performed to compare H(2)O(2)-based degradation of aqueous malachite green (MG) under microwave (MW)-enhanced and conventional heating (CH)-enhanced conditions, with the whole reaction courses traced by UV-vis spectrophotometer. The results showed that the higher discoloration rates of MG were available during MW-enhanced process,(More)
Biochar has shown great potential for immobilizing organic contaminants in soil. In this study, pentachlorobenzene (PeCB), 1,2,4,5-tetrachlorobenzene (1,2,4,5-TeCB), and 1,2,4-trichlorobenzene (1,2,4-TCB) artificially spiked soil was amended with wheat straw biochar at 0.1%, 0.5%, 1%, and 2% application rates, respectively. The sorption, dissipation, and(More)
DFT-B3LYP method with 6-31G(**) basis set was employed to fully optimize the electronic structures of 135 polychlorinated dibenzofurans and parent compound, namely dibenzofuran. It was demonstrated that polarizability anisotropy and mean polarizability could change sensitively and systematically with chlorine number and substitution pattern. And new(More)
To enhance the removal efficiency of 2,2',4,4'-tetrabromodiphenylether (BDE47) in aqueous solutions, novel attapulgite-supported Fe/Ni bimetallic nanoparticles (A-Fe/Ni), which were characterized by a core-shell nanoparticle structure and with an average diameter of 20-40 nm, were synthesized for use in BDE47 degradation. The presence of attapulgite in(More)
