Subcellular distribution and chemical forms of cadmium in Bechmeria nivea (L.) Gaud.
Abstract Bechmeria nivea (L.) Gaud. (Ramie) is a promising species for Cd phytoextraction with large biomass and fast growth rate. Nevertheless, little information is available on its toleranceExpand
Pedological characteristics of Mn mine tailings and metal accumulation by native plants.
A comparative study was conducted on Mn tailings and rhizosphere soils at the boundary of the tailings pond to determine the major constraints for plant establishment and the feasibility of remediation, finding all species studied could be good candidates for revegetation of Mn tailing. Expand
Characterization and genomic analysis of kraft lignin biodegradation by the beta-proteobacterium Cupriavidus basilensis B-8
These results confirmed the capability of C. basilensis B-8 to promote KL degradation and provide a theoretical basis for research into the mechanisms of lignin degradation as well as a practical basis for biofuel production using lignIn materials. Expand
Biodegradation of kraft lignin by a bacterial strain Comamonas sp. B‐9 isolated from eroded bamboo slips
Aims:  The aim was to obtain evidences for lignin degradation by unicellular bacterium Comamonas sp. B‐9.
Biochemical investigation of kraft lignin degradation by Pandoraea sp. B-6 isolated from bamboo slips
Many small molecules, such as cinnamic acid, ferulic acid, 2-hydroxy benzyl alcohol, and vanillyl methyl ketone, were formed during the period of KL degradation based on GC–MS analysis, indicating that this strain has great potential for biotreatment of black liquor. Expand
Cadmium-induced oxidative stress and response of the ascorbate-glutathione cycle in Bechmeria nivea (L.) Gaud.
Cd-induced oxidative damage in ramie is closely associated with the efficiency of its intrinsic antioxidant mechanisms and the accelerated operation of ascorbate-glutathione cycle provides ramie with enhanced Cd-stress tolerance. Expand
Synthesis of Core-Shell Magnetic Fe3O4@poly(m-Phenylenediamine) Particles for Chromium Reduction and Adsorption.
The Fe3O4@PmPDs have great potential in treating Cr( VI)-contaminated water and the coating of PmPD significantly enhanced Cr(VI) adsorption capacity from 46.79 (bare MNPs) to 246.09 mg g(-1) (71.55% Pm PD loading proportion), much higher than many reported composite adsorbents. Expand

The results suggest that anthropogenic activities, especially mining and smelting, have caused severe contamination of Cd, Pb, Zn, and Cu and posed very high potential ecological risk in the Xiangjiang River. Expand
Study of arsenic(V) adsorption on bone char from aqueous solution.
It is suggested that bone char can be used effectively for the removal of As(V) ion from aqueous solution and Ca-OH functional group plays an important role for As( V) ions removal. Expand
Sulfate-doped Fe3O4/Al2O3 nanoparticles as a novel adsorbent for fluoride removal from drinking water.
The potential utility of the nanoparticles as an effective adsorbent for fluoride removal from drinking water is demonstrated and anion exchange process was an important mechanism for fluoride adsorption by the sulfate-doped Fe3O4/Al2O3 nanoparticles. Expand
