The biodegradable chelator, [S, S]-isomer ethylenediaminedisuccinate (EDDS), has been proposed as an alternative soil additive used in enhanced phytoextraction of heavy metal contaminated soils. Energy plants with high biomass production can potentially be used in phytoextraction. In this study, a hydroponics experiment was conducted to investigate the uptake and accumulation of Cu and Cu-EDDS by kenaf (Hibiscus Cannabinus L.), one of the Chinese energy plants. The results showed that Cu… CONTINUE READING
