Abstract null null The response of freshwater invertebrates following accidental releases of oil is not well understood. This knowledge gap is more substantial for unconventional oils such as diluted bitumen (dilbit). We evaluated the effects of dilbit on insect emergence and benthic invertebrates by conducting experimental spills in limnocorrals (10-m diameter; ~100-m3) deployed in a boreal lake at the IISD-Experimental Lakes Area, Canada. The study included seven dilbit treatments (spill volum...

Abstract null null Porous carbons are appealing low-cost and metal-free catalysts in persulfate-based advanced oxidation processes. In this study, a family of porous biochar catalysts (ZnBC) with different porous structures and surface functionalities are synthesized using a chemical activation agent (ZnCl2). The functional biochars are used to activate persulfate for sulfamethoxazole (SMX) degradation. ZnBC-3 with the highest content of ketonic group (C O, 1.25 at%) exhibits the best oxidation ...

Abstract null null This review is intended to evaluate the use of ferrate (Fe(VI)), being a green coagulant, sustainable and reactive oxidant, to remove micro pollutants especially pharmaceutical pollutants in contaminated water. After a brief description of advanced oxidation processes, fundamental dimensions regarding the nature, reactivity, and chemistry of this oxidant are summarized. The degradation of contaminants by Fe(VI) involves several mechanisms and reactive agents which are critical...

Abstract null null Ion sorption on soil and sediment has been reported to be potentially affected by bacteria which may interact both physically and chemically with solid surfaces. However, whether and how bacteria affect the sorption of inorganic phosphate (P) on soil colloids remains poorly known. Here, we comparably investigated the P sorption on four soil colloids (three highly weathered soils including two Oxisols and one Ultisol and one weakly weathered soil Alfisol) and their complexes wi...

Abstract null null Microorganisms comprise the bulk of biodiversity and biomass in Antarctic terrestrial ecosystems. To effectively protect and manage the Antarctic environment from anthropogenic impacts including contamination, the response and recovery of microbial communities should be included in soil remediation efficacy and environmental risk assessments. This is the first investigation into the microbial dynamics associated with large scale bioremediation of hydrocarbon contaminated soil ...

Abstract null null The influence of intercalated anions on the structure and composition of green rusts supplies a theoretical possibility for the investigation of the structural modification of FeII/FeIII (oxyhydr)oxide materials. β-Cyclodextrin was intercalated into the mixed-valent iron-based hydroxide layers to synthesize new green rust materials (β-CD GRs), pursuing high-capacity uraniumVI (UVI) sorption. The molar ratios of FeII to FeIII and the molar ratios of β-CD GR to FeII + FeIII had ...

Abstract null null Nitrate is the most common contaminant in groundwater in Korea, as well as across the world. Reduction of nitrate to ammonia is one of the options available to remediate groundwater. In this study, nitrate in groundwater was removed using a zero-valent iron (ZVI) containing biochar synthesized by co-pyrolyzing iron oxide and sawdust biomass. Among the various biogases generated during the pyrolysis of biomass, CO and H2 act as reducing agents to transform iron oxides to ZVI. A...

Abstract null null Perfluorobutanesulfonate (PFBS) is an emerging pollutant in aquatic environments and potently disrupts the early developmental trajectory of teleosts. Considering the persistent and toxic nature of PFBS, it is necessary to develop in situ protective measures to ameliorate the toxic damage of PFBS. Probiotic supplements are able to mitigate the growth retardation defects of PFBS. However, the interactive mechanisms remain elusive. To this end, this study acutely exposed zebrafi...

Abstract null null The global concern over the possible consequences of the downsizing of plastic to microplastics (MPs) and nano plastics (NPs) needs to be addressed with a new conceptual framework. The transformation of plastics to MPs and NPs can be discussed in terms of fundamental physics principles applicable to micro and nanophase matter and colloidal science principles. Further, accurate and reliable detection and characterization of MPs and NPs are crucial for an extensive understanding...

Abstract null null As the largest tributary flowing into Chaohu Lake, China, the Hangbu–Fengle River (HFR) has an important impact on the aquatic environment security of the lake. However, existing information on the potential risks of heavy metals (HMs) in HFR sediments was insufficient due to the lack of bioavailability data on HMs. Hence, geochemical fractionation, bioavailability, and potential risk of five HMs (Cr, Cu, Zn, Cd, and Pb) in HFR sediments were investigated by the combined use o...
