Trace metals in seagrass, algae and molluscs from an uncontaminated area in the Mediterranean.
The concentrations of Cd, Cr, Cu, Pb and Zn were measured in specimens of four marine organisms--the seagrass Posidonia oceanica (L.) Delile, the brown algae Padina pavonica (L.) Thivy, and the twoExpand

Effects of advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) on the toxicity of a mixture of pharmaceuticals.
The possibility of applying main AOP techniques, namely ozonation, H2O2/UV photolysis and TiO2 photocatalysis to provide a significant reduction of toxicity of pharmaceutical mixtures has beenExpand

The reduction of chromium (VI) by iron (II) in aqueous solutions
Abstract The rates of the reduction of Cr(VI) with Fe(II) were measured in NaCl, NaClO 4 , and natural seawater as a function of pH (1.5–8.7), temperature (5–40°C) and ionic strength (I = 0.01–2 M).Expand

Proposal for a metal speciation study in sediments
Abstract A new five-step extraction procedure for metal speciation has been applied to two sediments, one marine and the other lakustrine. This procedure has been developed to distinguish the metalExpand

Arsenite oxidation by H2O2 in aqueous solutions
Abstract The rates of the oxidation of As( iii ) with H2O2 were measured in NaCl solutions as a function of pH (7.5–10.3), temperature (10–50C) and ionic strength (I = 0.01–4). The rate of theExpand

Organophosphorus and carbamate pesticide analysis using an inhibition tyrosinase organic phase enzyme sensor; comparison by butyrylcholinesterase+choline oxidase opee and application to natural
Recent research performed in our laboratory (using a butyrylcholinesterase+choline oxidase enzyme electrode) suggested the validity of the biosensor approach using enzyme inhibition OPEEs (i.e.Expand

An algal biosensor for the monitoring of water toxicity in estuarine environments.
An algal biosensor for toxicity assessment of estuarine waters is proposed. The sensor was obtained by coupling a suited algal bioreceptor (the cyanobacterium Spirulina subsalsa) to an amperometricExpand

Characterization of Italian honeys (Marche Region) on the basis of their mineral content and some typical quality parameters
BackgroundThe characterization of three types of Marche (Italy) honeys (Acacia, Multifloral, Honeydew) was carried out on the basis of the their quality parameters (pH, sugar content, humidity) andExpand

The use of vetiver for remediation of heavy metal soil contamination
AbstractThe use of Vetiveria zizanioides (vetiver) was studied to evaluate its efficiency for the remediation of soils contaminated by heavy metals. Vetiver plants were tested for Cr, Cu, Pb and Zn.Expand
