Effect of chemical forms of cadmium, zinc, and lead in polluted soils on their uptake by cabbage plants

  title={Effect of chemical forms of cadmium, zinc, and lead in polluted soils on their uptake by cabbage plants},
  author={Xiaoyan Xian},
  journal={Plant and Soil},
Seven soils which had been polluted with heavy metals from a zinc smelter were sequentially extracted so that Cd, Zn, and Pb could be partitioned into five operationally defined chemical fractions: exchangeable, bound to carbonate, bound to Fe−Mn oxide, bound to organic matter, and residual. Cabbage was planted in the soils to examine the effects of concentration and chemical form of the metals in soil on their uptake. The exchangeable fraction contained 55, 13, and 6%, and carbonate fraction… CONTINUE READING
