Characterization of pteris vittata rhizosphere during treatment of arsenite in hydroponics


Arsenic accumulation by hyperaccumulator, Pteris vittata, when exposed to arsenite in hydroponics is comparable to that when exposed to arsenate while arsenite uptake is considerably slower than arsenate uptake. Arsenite species around root and that in the incubating solution were analyzed to investigate arsenite oxidation in hydroponics. XANES analysis of… (More)
