Now available on Fast Track: Oganesson: a most unusual ‘inert gas’

Posted on 18. May, 2018.

Oganesson, with the symbol Og, is the artificially prepared (i.e. ‘man-made’) elementwith atomic number 118, previously known as eka-radon or Uuo (‘ununoctium’), and recently ‘blessed’ with an official name by IUPAC3. Atoms of the element were first produced using the U400 cyclotron at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna, Russia, via a heavy-ion fusion reaction utilising collision of a 4820Ca beam with a 24998Cf target.

Nickel Chemical Transformation in Polluted Soils as Affected by Metal Source and Moisture Regime

Posted on 22. September, 2010.

It is important to examine chemical speciation, transformation and availability of heavy metals in polluted soils under different moisture conditions. The present study was, therefore, undertaken to study the fate of added Ni in different soils polluted with sludge or inorganic salt under field capacity and flooding moisture regimes.

Influence of Nutrient Addition on Growth and Accumulation of Cadium and Copper in Lemna Gibba

Posted on 22. September, 2010.

The objective of this study was to determine whether nutrient enrichment enhances the metal tolerance of floating macrophytes, which would therefore enable the growth of floating vegetation in constructed wetlands at metal concentrations that would otherwise inhibit plant viability.

Phosphorous Sorption Characteristics of the Bronx River Bed Sediments

Posted on 22. September, 2010.

Jingyu Wang and Hari K. Pant, who are both based in New York, consider how the degradation of water quality of the Bronx river may be influenced by an increased flux of phosphorus which is a major nutrient for algal growth.. Algal blooms and oxygen depletion within the river have degraded the water quality, endangered fishing, and limited recreational use.
