The behavior of TNT in model chemical redox systems and the fate of TNT reduction products in aerobic microbial systems
When exposed to the Fenton oxidation process, approximately 25% of the initial TNT was mineralized and approximately 63% was converted to unknown soluble products. When exposed to Fe(0) under acidic conditions, TNT was ...
The effect of resuspension of estuarine sediments on the biodegradation of polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons
Polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a class of contaminants commonly found in bottom sediments near highly industrialized areas. Resuspension of these sediments can make these contaminants more available for ...
Potassium cyanide inhibition of mixed bacterial populations
Many substances are known to inhibit cellular respiration. Relatively non-specific inhibitors are generally effective in proportion to the degree of penetration into the cell. However, the mechanism of action of cyanide ...
