Chronic kidney disease is assuming the status of a global pandemic, afflicting over 500 million people worldwide, of all ages, gender and racial groups. ESRD accounts for the 19 commonest cause ofExpand
Chemical Uniformity in Ferroelectric KxNa1− xNbO3 Thin Films
Atomic layer deposition (ALD) of KNN thin films, exhibiting high chemical uniformity over large areas, is reported, believed to be a major step toward achieving lead‐free piezo‐ and ferroelectrics on an industrial scale. Expand
Estimation of Urinary Delta Aminolevulinic Acid Levels in Garage Workers as an Index of Lead Exposure
There is high prevalence of lead exposure in garage workers in Mumbai, and necessary precautions need to be taken to avoid it. Expand
Investigating adsorption characteristics of Delonix regia for heavy metals removal in wastewater and its potential for remediating contaminated soils
There is need to explore all possible agro-based inexpensive adsorbents and study their feasibility for heavy metal removal with the aim of finding which is a better alternative to activated carbon.Expand
Environmental justice along product life cycles: importance, renewable energy examples and policy complexities
ABSTRACT Environmental justice is critical to our efforts to preserve the human habitat from the degradation of pollution and climate change because of the need for cooperation and due to ourExpand
Contamination and human health risk of lead in soils around lead/zinc smelting areas in China
The Pb/Zn smelting sites in the southwest and southeast provinces of China, as well as Liaoning province, were most contaminated and thus should receive priority for remediation. Expand
Occupational stress among workers having exposure to lead
Investigation of the association of occupational lead exposure and symptoms, which indicate malfunctioning in eye, digestive system, upper respiratory tract, chest and skin among men in a case control study found increase in the frequency of symptoms was observed among workers with increase in years of occupational exposure.

interdisciplinary Lead toxicity : a review
Lead toxicity is an important environmental disease and its effects on the human body are devastating. There is almost no function in the human body which is not affected by lead toxicity. Though inExpand
Efficient removal of lead from highly acidic wastewater by periodic ion imprinted mesoporous SBA-15 organosilica combining metal coordination and co-condensation
In order to develop a highly efficient method for direct removal of lead from acidic wastewater (pH 2.0), we introduce a novel highly ordered Pb2+ imprinted mesoporous silica (PbIMS) SBA-15 combiningExpand
