Contents: Chemical Speciation And Bioavailability Volume 22 Issue 2 2010

Posted on 25. June, 2010.

Chemical Speciation & Bioavailability covers all aspects of environmental science and pollution. In its next issue, CSB  looks at techiniques to determine trace metals in river bed sediments, the heavy metal content in slaker grits from a pulp mill, and the separation of mecury from  natural water sources. It also describes a fast method to measure metal concentration in soil samples. Finally, does selenium in wine from China pose a health risk?

Magpie Parents Appear To Induce Mortality Of Unwanted Chicks

Posted on 24. June, 2010.

According to a study published in Journal of Avian Biology, magpies favour some of their nestlings over others but in a strange and unique manner. Dr Sang-im Lee and her colleagues at Seoul National University and Ewha University, South Korea, examined the mortality of magpie nestlings and found 'rarer-sex disadvantage'. This means that sons die out more when more daughters are present in the nest, and daughters die more when more sons are in the nest.

Organotin Compounds In Technology And Industry

Posted on 17. June, 2010.

Organotin compounds find a bigger range of technological and industrial applications than the organic compounds of any other metal. Many of these applications involve catalysis or anticatalysis, often in polymer chemistry, and they have an importance out of all proportion to the tonnage of tin which is used. This article reviews the present standing of the non-biological applications of organostannanes, with an emphasis on the mechanisms of the reactions which are involved.
