Chemically assisted phytoextraction a review of potential soil amendments for increasing plant uptake of heavy metals

, : Chemically assisted phytoextraction a review of potential soil amendments for increasing plant uptake of heavy metals. International Journal Of Phytoremediation: 5, 390-414

The contamination of soils by trace metals has been an unfortunate side effect of industrialization. Some of these contaminants can interfere with vulnerable enduses of soil, such as agriculture or nature, already at relatively low levels of contamination. Reversely, conventional civil-technical soil-remediation techniques are too expensive to remediate extended areas of moderately contaminated soil.

Insulin labeled with 125I was injected into turtles to study its specific uptake by the thyroid gland. The gel filtration behavior of labeled material in blood and thyroid gland was determined in order to ascertain if the uptake is specific. Most...
