Removal and recovery of heavy metals from aqueous solution using papaya wood as a new biosorbent
Abstract Papaya wood was evaluated as a new biosorbent of heavy metals. On contacting 10 mg l −l copper(II), cadmium(II) and zinc(II) solutions with 5 g l −1 papaya wood, during shake flask contact… Expand
Flowering time in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.): a key factor for global adaptability
Wheat is one of the most widely cultivated crops and, being the staple diet of more than 40 countries, it plays an imperative role in food security. Wheat has remarkable genetic potential to… Expand
Phytoremediation of Heavy Metals: Physiological and Molecular Mechanisms
Heavy metals (HM) are a unique class of toxicants since they cannot be broken down to non-toxic forms. Concentration of these heavy metals has increased drastically, posing problems to health and… Expand
Genotypic Variation in the Phytoremediation Potential of Indian Mustard for Chromium
The term “phytoremediation” is used to describe the cleanup of heavy metals from contaminated sites by plants. This study demonstrates phytoremediation potential of Indian mustard (Brasicca juncea… Expand
Application potential of grapefruit peel as dye sorbent: kinetics, equilibrium and mechanism of crystal violet adsorption.
This study reports the sorption of crystal violet (CV) dye by grapefruit peel (GFP), which has application potential in the remediation of dye-contaminated wastewaters using a solid waste generated… Expand
Biosorption of reactive dye by loofa sponge-immobilized fungal biomass of Phanerochaete chrysosporium
Abstract A white rot basidiomycete Phanerochaete chrysosporium immobilized in loofa sponge was evaluated and characterized as a new biosorbent of dyes. Effects of biosorption process parameters on… Expand
Induction of phytochelatins and antioxidant defence system in Brassica juncea and Vigna radiata in response to chromium treatments
Growth performance, chromium (Cr) accumulation potential and induction of antioxidative defence system and phytochelatins (PCs) were studied in hydroponically grown Brassica juncea (Indian mustard)… Expand
Effect of Various Plant Spacing and Different Nitrogen Levels on the Growth and Yield of Onion (Allium cepa L.)
Seed enhancement with cytokinins: changes in growth and grain yield in salt stressed wheat plants
Cytokinins are often considered abscisic acid (ABA) antagonists and auxins antagonists/synergists in various processes in plants. Seed enhancement (seed priming) with cytokinins is reported to… Expand
Modulation of antioxidant defence system for arsenic detoxification in Indian mustard.
This study investigates the modulation of antioxidant defence system of Indian mustard (cv. Pusa Jai Kisan) against the arsenic (As)-induced toxicity in 20-day-old plants, exposed to 5 and 25 microM… Expand
