Discharge of Cr waste from many industrial applications such as leather tanning, textile production, electroplating, metallurgy, and petroleum refinery has led to large-scale contamination of land and water. Generally, Cr exists in two stable states: Cr(III) and Cr(VI). Cr(III) is not very soluble and is immobilized by precipitation as hydroxides. Cr(VI) is(More)
We investigated the phospholipid fatty acid (PLFA) pattern and dehydrogenase activity (DHA) in soil samples from three sites (designated as low, medium, and high based on the level of chromium) in a long-term (25 years after last waste input) tannery waste-contaminated area rich in Cr. Soil samples, collected from different soil depths (0-100 cm), at each(More)
