Speciation results are acquired using a silver ion selective electrode in 3 soils. The study differentiates free silver ions from silver in the <0.45 µm fraction in soil solution and helps us understand how nanosilver reacts in soils.
Fluoride is a persistent and non-biodegradable pollutant that accumulates in soil, plants, wildlife and in human beings. This review surveys the efficacy of different materials for the removal of fluoride from water
The fate of AgNPs, which are increasingly found in consumer products and therefore wastewater, was investigated in sewage subjected to aerobic and anaerobic treatment, and the impact of AgNPs on microbial processes and communities was evaluated.
Carnosine, a compound found in meat, has a range of beneficial properties, and may aid in the treatment of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other age-related diseases. This review discusses the mechanisms that could accommodate the uniquely disparate effects of carnosine on cellular activity
The fate of 14 antidepressant drugs was examined in wastewater from a primary sewage treatment plant. It was found that ozonation of the effluent led to higher removal efficiencies than current primary treatment methods
A novel pH-induced reversible assembly and disassembly of single walled carbon nanotubes has been developed, which may have potential applications in the area of controlled assembly of nanostructures
Gold nanoparticles supported onto a range of zeolites, were found to have efficient antimicrobial properties when tested against Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhi colonies
Stanozolol is an anabolic steroid, commonly misused by athletes during preparation for competition. A new sensitive, specific and reproducible method to determine the stanozolol in hair, urine and serum has been developed, which could be extended for doping testing.
