Transport via xylem of trichloroethylene (TCE) from roots to shoots in seedlings of wheat, corn, and tomato was measured following a 24-h exposure of plant roots to hydroponic solutions containing TCE. Dewdrops on plant leaves were also collected to test the foliar uptake by plants and the volatilization of TCE from shoot to air. Results indicated that the TCE concentration in xylem sap of wheat and corn decreased significantly with increasing TCE concentration in external solutions, where the… CONTINUE READING
