We report that the insoluble Fe-HA complex, which was synthesized with both commercial Aldrich humic acid (HA) and natural HA, functions as a solid-phase electron mediator (EM) for the anaerobic microbial dechlorination of pentachlorophenol. Spectroscopic characterizations and sequential Fe extraction demonstrated that the Fe-HA complex was predominated with Na4P2O7-labile Fe (represented as the organically bound Fe fraction) and poorly ordered Fe fraction (the fraction left in the residue… Expand
Influence of Humic Acid Complexation with Metal Ions on Extracellular Electron Transfer Activity
TLDR
The results show that the electron shuttle capacities of HAs were enhanced after complexation with Fe but were weakened when using Cu or Al and have important implications for biogeochemical redox processes given the ubiquitous nature of both HAs and various metals in the environment. Expand
Characterization of humins from different natural sources and the effect on microbial reductive dechlorination of pentachlorophenol.
TLDR
All humins facilitated microbial reductive dechlorination of PCP as electron mediators using formate as carbon source, with different de chlorination rates ranging from 0.99 to 7.63 (μmol Cl-) L(-1) d(-1). Expand
Effects of landfill refuse on the reductive dechlorination of pentachlorophenol and speciation transformation of heavy metals.
TLDR
Results showed that Zn and Ni have high potential migration capacity, poor stability and the highest bioavailability, while Cr, Cu and Pb are relatively stable and have weak migration potential, while oxygen- and nitrogen-containing functional groups, aliphatic structures and aromatic carbon in landfill refuse can promote the transformation of Ni and Cr from an unstable to stable state.

Immobilization of metal-humic acid complexes in anaerobic granular sludge for their application as solid-phase redox mediators in the biotransformation of iopromide in UASB reactors.
TLDR
This is the first successful application of immobilized RM, which does not require a supporting material to maintain the solid-phase RM in long term operation of bioreactors, suitable for enhancing the redox conversion of different recalcitrant pollutants present in industrial effluents. Expand
Accelerating effects of humin on sulfide-mediated azo dye reduction.
TLDR
Understanding of the influence of humin on reductive transformation of pollutants in the environment was extended and synergistic promotion of sulfide-mediated AR27 reduction was observed with coexisting humin and SWy-2 due to enhanced Fe(II) production. Expand
Biochar-Facilitated Microbial Reduction of Hematite.
TLDR
The results suggest that Fe redox cycling may be strongly impacted by pyrogenic carbon in soils with relatively high content of indigenous pyrogensic carbon or substantial application of biochar. Expand
Perchlorate bioreduction by anaerobic granular sludge immobilised with Fe-HA complex: Performance, extracellular polymeric substances and microbial community structure.
TLDR
The ClO4- bioreduction mechanism of the An GSFH was revealed because the Fe-HA complex in the AnGS increased the biomass concentration, biological activity, and redox-active mediator and shifted the microbial community structure. Expand

TLDR
Distribution of potential electron shuttles such as quinone-like substances, flavins, aromatic amino acids, and dipeptides in SMP and EPS phases were comprehensively investigated and these electron Shuttles were significantly affected by Fe3O4. Expand
