Nanoscale zero-valent iron: future prospects for an emerging water treatment technology.
For the past 15 years, nanoscale metallic iron (nZVI) has been investigated as a new tool for the treatment of contaminated water and soil. The technology has reached commercial status in many… Expand
Magnetite and zero-valent iron nanoparticles for the remediation of uranium contaminated environmental water.
The current work presents a comparative and site specific study for the application of zero-valent iron nanoparticles (nano-Fe(0)) and magnetite nanoparticles (nano-Fe(3)O(4)) for the removal of U… Expand
Nanoscale Metallic Iron for Environmental Remediation: Prospects and Limitations
The amendment of the subsurface with nanoscale metallic iron particles (nano-Fe0) has been discussed in the literature as an efficient in situ technology for groundwater remediation. However, the… Expand

Although contaminant removal from water using zero-valent iron nanoparticles (INP) has been investigated for a wide array of chemical pollutants, the majority of studies to date have only examined… Expand
Modeling the Permeability Loss of Metallic Iron Water Filtration Systems
Over the past 30 years the literature has burgeoned with in situ approaches for groundwater remediation. Of the methods currently available, the use of metallic iron (Fe0) in permeable reactive… Expand
The effects of vacuum annealing on the structure and surface chemistry of iron nanoparticles
In order to increase the longevity of contaminant retention, a method is sought to improve the corrosion resistance of iron nanoparticles (INP) used for remediation of contaminated water and thereby… Expand
The removal of uranium onto carbon-supported nanoscale zero-valent iron particles
In the current work carbon-supported nanoscale zero-valent iron particles (CS nZVI), synthesised by the vacuum heat treatment of ferric citrate trihydrate absorbed onto carbon black, have been tested… Expand
Removal of uranium (VI) from aqueous systems by nanoscale zero-valent iron particles suspended in carboxy-methyl cellulose
Abstract Carboxy-methyl-cellulose (CMC), a common “delivery vehicle” for the subsurface deployment of iron nanoparticles (INP) has been tested in the current work for the removal of aqueous uranium… Expand
Nanoscale zero-valent iron particles for the remediation of plutonium and uranium contaminated solutions
In the current work the uptake of plutonium onto nanoscale zero-valent iron nanoparticles (nZVI) under anoxic conditions has been investigated. A uranyl solution was also studied under similar… Expand
Physicochemical composition of wastes and co-located environmental designations at legacy mine sites in the south west of England and Wales: Implications for their resource potential
This work examines the potential for resource recovery and/or remediation of metalliferous mine wastes in the south west of England and Wales. It does this through an assessment of the… Expand
