Study on the use of Typha spp. for the phytotreatment of water contaminated with ibuprofen

Several studies on phytotoxic effects caused by organic xenobiotics and their removal from water by macrophytes have already been performed to evaluate the usefulness of these plants for

Mitigation of atrazine, S-metolachlor, and diazinon using common emergent aquatic vegetation.

Evaluation of carbamazepine uptake and metabolization by Typha spp., a plant with potential use in phytotreatment.




Evaluating acute toxicity of methyl parathion application in constructed wetland mesocosms

Wetland ecosystems have reduced ambient levels of various organic and metallic compounds, although their effectiveness on agricultural pesticides is not well documented, and data suggest that wetlands play a significant role in mitigating the effect of MeP exposure in sensitive aquatic biota.

Bioaccumulation of methyl parathion and its toxicology in several species of the freshwater community in Ignacio Ramirez dam in Mexico.

The increase in enzymatic activity provides a detoxification mechanism from chronic sublethal exposure, when hepatic glutation depletion occurs, and may be an indicator of liver damage.

Metalaxyl and Simazine Toxicity to and Uptake by Typha latifolia

The results suggest that the common cattail may be a good candidate for incorporation into a phytoremediation scheme for metalaxyl and simazine.

Advances in phytoremediation.

Transgenic plants have been engineered to rapidly detoxify and transform such xenobiotic chemicals, which could be used in phytoremediation applications if issues of cost and public acceptability are overcome.

Degradation Kinetics of Organophosphorus and Organonitrogen Pesticides in Different Waters under Various Environmental Conditions.

These experiments confirm that half-lives of OP pesticides can be more than several months and consequently lead to lasting environmental pollution.

Uptake and phytotransformation of organophosphorus pesticides by axenically cultivated aquatic plants.

The results of this study showed that selected aquatic plants have the potential to accumulate and to metabolize OP compounds and provided knowledge for potential use in phytoremediation processes.
