Phytoremediation of soil contaminated with phenanthrene and pyrene was investigated using twelve plant species. Plant uptake and accumulation of these chemicals were evaluated. At the end of the experiment(45 d), the remaining respective concentrations of soil phenanthrene and pyrene in spiked vegetated soils, with initial phenanthrene of 133.3 mg/kg and(More)
Soil pollution has been attracting considerable public attentions over the last decades. Sorts of traditional physiochemical methods have been used to remove the organic pollutants from soils. However, the enormous costs and low efficiencies associated with these remediation technologies limit their availabilities. Phytoremediation is an emerging technology(More)
A method for detecting the estrogens estriol, 17beta-estradiol, ethinyl estradiol, and bisphenol A in livestock dung was established by the combination of ultrasonic extraction (UE), solid phase extraction (SPE) purification, and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with fluorescence detector (FLD). The dung samples were extracted with ethyl(More)
The dissolved organic matter (DOM), water soluble organic matter derived from sewage sludge was separated into hydrophobic fraction (Ho) and hydrophilic fraction (Hi). The sorption of DOM and its fractions on soils and the effects of DOM sorption on a nonionic pesticide (atrazine(2-chloro-4-ethylamino-6-isopropylamino-1,3,5-trazine)) distribution between(More)
This paper studied the enhanced fixation of phenanthrene in clay loam soil, sandy silt soil, and silt loam soil under effects of exotic organic materials (EOMs) commercial organic fertilizer and peat. The results showed that after the addition of EOMs, the adsorption isotherms of phenanthrene in test soils were still linear, and distribution was the(More)
Estradiol (E2) and diethylstilbestrol (DES) can be enriched in sewage and cow dung, posing serious threats to human and ecological health. Strain Rhodococcus sp. JX-2 and strain Serratia sp. S, which could degrade 17β-estradiol and diethylstilbestrol, respectively, were immobilized by alginate and then added into sewage and cow dung to remove E2 and DES.(More)
The soybean, sesame and corn stalks were pyrolyzed and charred for 8 h at 300-700 degrees C to obtain stalk environmental biomaterials. The BET specific surface areas, methylene blue, and iodine adsorption capacity of the stalk environmental biomaterials were determined. The sorption efficiency of these materials on single polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon(More)
Two endophytic bacterial strains, which could degrade high concentration (up to 200 mg.L-1) of phenanthrene in liquid, were isolated from plants grown in PAHs-contaminated soils by the selective. enrichment culture. According to the results of morphology, physiology and the phylogenetic analyses of 16S rDNA sequence, stain P1 was identified as(More)
Subcellular distribution of phenanthrene as a representative of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in roots of five plants was investigated using a greenhouse hydroponic experiment. Results showed that, with the increase of the equilibrium concentrations of phenanthrene in solution from 0.056 to 0.39 mg x L(-1), the respective concentrations of(More)
The adsorption of a typical biogenic toxin aflatoxin B1 on montmorillonite modified by low-molecular-weight humic acids (M(r) < 3 500) was investigated. The montmorillonite rapidly adsorbed the aflatoxin B1 until amounting to the maximal capacity, and then the adsorbed aflatoxin B1 slowly released into solution and reached the sorption equilibrium state(More)
