Catharanthus roseus as a model system for the study of the phytoremediation of TNT
C. roseus hairy roots cultures were employed to prove the ability of plants to take up and transform TNT in the absence of microbes. Mass balances performed with 14C-TNT showed that the TNT was being taken up and transformed ...
Metabolism of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene by Clostridium acetobutylicum: Pathway identification and lab-scale evaluation of contaminated soil bioremediation
Studies are presented investigating the metabolism of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) by Clostridium acetobutylicum. When incubated with a batch culture of acetogenic Clostridium acetobutylicum, TNT was reduced through ...
A method to model passive oxygen reaeration in naturally attenuating plumes using Fick's Law
To physically represent oxygen reaeration in contaminant fate and transport modeling Fick's Second Law of Diffusion is numerically solved to obtain a mass flux of oxygen entering the groundwater. This mass flux of oxygen ...
