Heavy metals in agricultural soils from Piedmont, Italy. Distribution, speciation and chemometric data treatment.
The distribution and speciation of heavy metals in five agricultural soils of Piedmont Region (north-western Italy) were investigated. Ten metals, namely Al, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, Ti and ZnExpand

Adsorption of heavy metals on Na-montmorillonite. Effect of pH and organic substances.
Clays (especially montmorillonite and bentonite) are widely used as barriers in landfills to prevent contamination of subsoil and groundwater by leachates containing heavy metals. For this reason itExpand

Statistical investigation of the differences in the distribution of metals in Nebbiolo-based wines
Abstract Sixty-eight samples of red wines were analysed with inductively coupled plasma–mass spectrometry (ICP–MS). Fifty-six elements were determined, mainly metal ions at trace levelExpand

Distribution and mobility of metals in contaminated sites. chemometric investigation of pollutant profiles.
The distribution and mobility of heavy metals in the soils of two contaminated sites in Piedmont (Italy) was investigated, evaluating the horizontal and vertical profiles of 15 metals, namely Al, Cd,Expand

Adsorption of heavy metals on vermiculite: influence of pH and organic ligands.
The sorption behaviour of vermiculite has been studied with respect to cadmium, copper, lead, manganese, nickel, and zinc as a function of pH and in the presence of different ligands. The continuousExpand

Screening for heavy metal accumulators amongst autochtonous plants in a polluted site in Italy.
The site around ACNA factory (Northern Italy) is characterized by multi-metal contamination, therefore it can be considered as a source of autochthonous plants able to tolerate or accumulate heavyExpand

Determination of metals in wine with atomic spectroscopy (flame-AAS, GF-AAS and ICP-AES); a review
Metals in wine occur at the mg l-1 level or less and, though not directly related to the taste of the final product, their content should be determined because excess is undesirable, and in someExpand
