Waste biomass adsorbents for copper removal from industrial wastewater--a review.
TLDR
The current review is dedicated to presenting state of the art knowledge on various bioadsorbents and physico-chemical conditions used to remediate Cu(2+) from waste streams and the data of Cu removal was found best fit both Freundlich and Langmuir models. Expand
Emerging contaminants of high concern and their enzyme-assisted biodegradation - A review.
TLDR
Immobilization is highlighted as a promising approach to improve enzyme catalytic performance and stabilization, as well as, to protect the three-dimensional structure of the enzyme against the undesirable consequences of harsh reaction environment. Expand

  • 1 March 2018
TLDR
The spatiotemporal pattern of haze effects is investigated, and the additional effects of temperature, air pollution and urban environment on the short-term mortality risk during hazy days are explored, to develop a data-driven technique to analyze the effects of haze on mortality. Expand
Green nanotechnology: a review on green synthesis of silver nanoparticles — an ecofriendly approach
TLDR
Novel outcomes of green synthesis in the field of nanotechnology are appreciable where the synthesis and design of NPs have proven potential outcomes in diverse fields. Expand
Microbial-derived biosensors for monitoring environmental contaminants: Recent advances and future outlook
TLDR
The value of the microbial-derived biosensors, which could detect various pollutants or toxic compounds from a broader spectrum in the real-time, rapid and unique way with high sensitivity, and outstanding selectivity, is highlighted. Expand
MEDICINAL EFFICACY OF ANTIHYPERTENSIVE AGENTS FOR ACUTE INFLAMMATION; AN ASSOCIATED RISK FACTOR OF HYPERTENSION
TLDR
It is concluded that antihypertensive also minimize the inflammation associated hypertension but not completely, as inflammation was reversed only in 67.5% population who were using beta-blocker. Expand
