Debromination ofPBDEs by zerovalent iron has high potential values for remediation of PBDEs in the environment and almost all the possible isomers from a specific parent BDE were found. Expand
Genome sequence of the deep-sea γ-proteobacterium Idiomarina loihiensis reveals amino acid fermentation as a source of carbon and energy
The report of the complete genome sequence of the deep-sea γ-proteobacterium, Idiomarina loihiensis, isolated recently from a hydrothermal vent at 1,300-m depth on the Lōihi submarine volcano, Hawaii, reveals an integrated mechanism of metabolic adaptation to the constantly changingdeep-sea hydroThermal ecosystem.

Occurrence, distribution and seasonal variations of polychlorinated biphenyls and polybrominated diphenyl ethers in surface waters of the East Lake, China.
The analysis of distribution, pattern and seasonal variations indicated the different potential sources of PCBs and PBDEs in the East Lake and the potential eco-toxicological risk was also discussed in the study. Expand
Potential impact of the herbicide 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid on human and ecosystems.
The findings demonstrate that 2,4-D is present in a low concentration in surface water of regions where its usage is high and indicates the urgent need to further explore fate, accumulation and its continuous low level exposure impacts on the environment to generate reliable database which is key in drafting new regulation and policies to protect the population from further exposure.

Isolation and characterization of bacteria capable of degrading polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and organophosphorus pesticides from PAH-contaminated soil in Hilo, Hawaii.
Analysis of the soil showed 13 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in a range from 0.6 to 30 mg/kg of dry weight each and 12 PAH metabolites, and Turbidity tests showed that strains P1-1, JS14, and JS19b1 utilized several organophosphorus pesticides as growth substrate. Expand
Rapid biodegradation of organophosphorus pesticides by Stenotrophomonas sp. G1.
Strain G1 can efficiently degrade eight organophosphorus pesticides (OPs) and is a very excellent candidate for applications in OP pollution remediation. Expand
Evaluation of an up-flow anaerobic sludge bed (UASB) reactor containing diatomite and maifanite for the improved treatment of petroleum wastewater.
This study illustrates a new potential use of diatomite and maifanite as support materials in UASB reactors for increased efficiency when treating refractory wastewaters. Expand
Application of an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the analysis of imidacloprid in wiliwili tree, Erythrina sandwicensis O. Deg, for control of the wasp Quadrastichus erythrinae.
The ELISA is a suitable method for quantitative and reliable determination of imidacloprid in wiliwili trees and the application provides information to understand how to control the wasps. Expand
Application of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for quantification of the insecticides imidacloprid and thiamethoxam in honey samples
An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was used for the determination of residues of imidacloprid and thiamethoxam insecticides in honey after simple dilution of the samples without either extraction or cleanup, and the results indicate that ELISA is a suitable tool for the quantification ofImidaclobrid andThiameth Oxam in honey.
