Effect of citric acid and EDTA on chromium and nickel uptake and translocation by Datura innoxia.
EDTA and citric acid were tested to solubilize metals and enhance their uptake by Datura innoxia, chosen because of its ability to accumulate and tolerate metals. Two application modes were used onExpand

Effect of chromium species on phytochemical and physiological parameters in Datura innoxia.
In soil, chromium can be found in two main valence states: hexavalent Cr(VI) and trivalent Cr(III). In this study, we investigated the impact of Cr on photosynthetic gas exchange, photosystem IIExpand

Conditions for effective removal of pyrene from an artificially contaminated soil using Pseudomonas aeruginosa 57SJ rhamnolipids.
The efficacy of a new rhamnolipid biosurfactants mixture to enhance the removal of pyrene from a soil artificially contaminated was investigated. The molar solubilization ratio (MSR) and theExpand

Column leaching of chromium and nickel from a contaminated soil using EDTA and citric acid.
This study investigates the column leaching of a soil contaminated mainly with Cr and Ni by using two chelants: citric acid (biodegradable) and EDTA (non-biodegradable) followed with water rinse. TheExpand

Characterization of the mineral fraction associated to extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) in anaerobic granular sludges.
The extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) extracted from four anaerobic granular sludges contain an important mineral fraction (20-77% of the EPS dry weight). The composition of the mineralExpand
