Municipal wastewater effluent contains ligands that form Hg(II) complexes that are inert in the presence of glutathione (GSH) during competitive ligand exchange experiments. In this study, the strong ligands in wastewater effluent were further characterized by comparing their behavior with sulfide-containing ligands in model solutions and by measuring their concentration after . Such ligands have been proposed to account for the high mobility of Cu in aquifers (15). The aim of this study was to examine the effects of the two anthropogenic ligands EDTA and NTA and of natural organic ligands on speciation and mobility of trace metals in an infiltration system. The investigated infiltration site of. organic matter that has decomposed under controlled conditions to produce an organic-rich material that enhances soil structure, cation exchange capacity, and fertility leachate Liquid that contains elevated levels of pollutants as a result of having passed through municipal solid waste (MSW) or contaminated soil. As a preliminary evaluation of metal transport by metal-organic complexing, activities of lead and zinc complexes involving nine carboxylate ligands (acetate, propionate, n-butyrate, phthalate, oxalate, tartronate, malate, D-tartrate, and salicylate) have been calculated for PbS- and ZnS-saturated, average ore solutions (those proposed by Cited by:

To date, the sources, chemical structures and degradation mechanisms of organic metal-binding ligands are still not well understood, making it difficult to model them with sufficient confidence. Due to the complexation of dissolved Cd in surface waters by this class of organic ligands, together with the vertical distribution of total dissolved Cd (ranging from 2 to pM), the concentration of inorganic forms of Cd varies from ∼ pM in surface waters to pM at by: examines citrate aqueous metal complexation, with specific emphasis on the complexation of Fe (III) and Al.

Citrate is a naturally occurring ligand, with a widespread occurrence in nature. It is a chelate exuded by plant roots and having the effect of enhancing the phytoavailability of Fe, while detoxifying Al. The chapter content brings intoFile Size: KB.

Wetlands are highly productive ecosystems that usually provide an abundance of food for a diversity of fish and bird species, and. et al. () for U.S. wetlands includes 5 system types, 8 subsystems, 11 classes, 28 subclasses, and a large number of dominance types.

Included within the category of wetlands are vegetation types that range from early colonizing (i.e., pioneer communities dominated by species such as cattails [Typha spp.]), to ancient, self-maintaining (i.e., old-growth, forested wetlands. An expanding global population not only increases the amounts of municipal solid waste and wastewater generated but also raises demand for a wide range of raw materials used to manufacture goods.

Extraction of these raw materials and many subsequent manufacturing processes contribute significantly to the presence of a variety of metals in wastewaters and Cited by: 1. Due to their distinct physicochemical properties, rare earth elements (REEs) are critical to high-tech and clean-energy industries; however, their bioavailability is still largely unexplored.
