Bioaccessibility of barium from barite contaminated soils based on gastric phase in vitro data and plant uptake.

Abstract

Barite contamination of soil commonly occurs from either barite mining or explorative drilling operations. This work reported in vitro data for barite contaminated soils using the physiologically based extraction test (PBET) methodology. The existence of barite in plant tissue and the possibility of 'biomineralised' zones was also investigated using… (More)
