Bacterial Decolorization and Degradation of Azo Dyes
Color has always been a part of human life since long. All colorants, until the middle of nineteenth century, were of natural origin. Manufacturing of synthetic dyes started in 1856 and the first
Hexavalent chromium interaction with chitosan
Chitosan prepared from fresh water crab shells was used for hexavalent chromium removal. Kinetic studies indicated a rapid removal of chromium from aqueous solutions. The first-order rate constant
Cr(VI) reduction by Bacillus coagulans isolated from contaminated soils
Investigation on Cr(VI) reduction was conducted using bacteria isolated from soil samples receiving electroplating wastewater. Chromium reduction capacity of these isolates was compared with that of
Contamination of nitrate and fluoride in ground water along the Ganges Alluvial Plain of Kanpur district, Uttar Pradesh, India
Nitrate–N and Fluoride concentrations were analyzed in shallow and unconfined ground water aquifers of Kanpur district along the Ganges Alluvial Plain of Northern India and revealed a skewed (non-normal) distribution.
Screening of tropical wood-rotting mushrooms for copper biosorption
The maximum uptake potentials derived from equilibrium studies indicated that all nine species exhibited higher Q(infmax)s at pH 4.0 than that of Filtrasorb-400, a generally used adsorbent for metal removal.
