Samples of water, sediment and suspended particulates were collected from 13 sites in the middle and lower reaches of the Yellow River in China. Phthalic acid esters (PAEs) concentrations in different phases of each sample were determined by Gas Chromatogram GC-FID. The results are shown as follows: (1) In the Xiao Langdi-Dongming Bridge section, PAEs(More)
The concentrations of heavy metals (Cr, Cd, Hg, Cu, Zn, Pb and As) in the water, sediment, and fish were investigated in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River, China. Potential ecological risk analysis of sediment heavy metal concentrations indicated that six sites in the middle reach, half of the sites in the lower reach, and two sites in(More)
In this study, concentrations, distribution between different phases, transition along the Middle and Lower reaches of the Yellow River and possible sources of PAHs were assessed. Results demonstrated that the relative proportions of 15 PAHs in all stations of the main River were similar, with concentrations of benzo[a]pyrene all above drinking water(More)
The Second Songhua River was subjected to a large amount of raw or primary effluent from chemical industries in Jilin city in 1960s to 1970s, resulting in serious mercury pollution. However, an understanding of other trace metal pollution has remained unclear. The objective of this study was to investigate trace metal contamination in the sediment of the(More)
CAS-ICT took part in the TREC conference for the second time this year and we undertook two tracks of TREC-11. For filtering track, we have submitted results of all three subtasks. In adaptive filtering, we paid more attention to undetermined documents processing, profile building and adaptation. In batch filtering and routing, a centroid-based classifier(More)
The equilibrium and kinetics of chlorophenol (CP) sorption by chitosan, poly D-glucosamine, were studied under simulated groundwater conditions. Lower temperature, from 25 degrees C to 15 degrees C and then 5 degrees C, markedly decreased the adsorption rates by a factor of 30-53% and 7-22%. Comparison between two types of chitosan, flakes and highly(More)
Concentrations of several persistent organohalogen compounds such as dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane and its metabolites (DDTs), hexachlorocyclohexanes (HCHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), decabromodiphenylethane (DBDPE), and polybrominated biphenyl 153 (PBB 153) were measured in eggs of six species of wild(More)
The purification of nitrate-rich agricultural runoff by a floating-raft (FR) hydroponic system was investigated at 3-, 2- and 1-d hydraulic retention times (HRTs) with particular emphasis on nitrogen conversion and removal through the system. The FR system has a dissolved oxygen (DO) environment similar to the horizontal subsurface flow system, generally(More)
By partial least squares (PLS) regression, quantitative structure-property relationship (QSPR) models were developed for photodegradation rates (k(p)) and quantum yields (Phi) of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in methanol/water (8:2), and photodegradation rates in pure methanol by UV light in the sunlight region, respectively. Quantum chemical(More)
