Nano-Fe2O3 as a tool to restore plant growth in contaminated soils - Assessment of potentially toxic elements (bio)availability and redox homeostasis in Hordeum vulgare L.

Andrés Rodríguez-Seijo, Ruth Pereira et 7 al.

Mar 5, 2022 in Journal of hazardous materials
This work aimed to evaluate the potential of Fe2O3 nanoparticles (nano-Fe2O3) to alleviate potentially toxic elements (PTEs) - induced stress in barley plants (Hordeum vulgare L.), focusing on bioaccumulation patterns and on plant growth and redox homeostasis. To achieve this goal, plants grew in two agricultural soils, contaminated by different levels of PTEs, collected from an industrial area, p...

Long-term application of the organic and inorganic pesticides in vineyards: Environmental record of past use

Carla Patinha et 12 al.

Jan 1, 2017 in Applied Geochemistry
Areas such as Douro Demarcated Region (Portugal), where vineyards are frequently located on steep slopes of narrow valleys, can be particularly sensitive to runoff and erosion processes. These particular conditions are expected to enhance the transport of pollutants, acting as a potential source of contamination to freshwater systems. The intense vine cultivation in this region includes decades o...


Adsorption of lead (Pb) in strongly weathered tropical soil (Ribeira Valley region - Brazil)

Carla Patinha et 5 al.

Jan 1, 2019 in Earth Sciences Research Journal
Los suelos lateriticos se han utilizado ampliamente en la construccion de revestimientos de basureros para residuos municipales e industriales. Por otro lado, hay poca practica en el uso de suelos residuales fuertemente meteorizados para esta finalidad. El uso de suelo local para la construccion de revestimientos para impermeabilizar y retener contaminantes representa una alternativa para controla...

Former Extractive Activities in Tunisia: Environmental Risk Assessement and Heavy Metals Immobilization

Jihène Nouairi et 7 al.

Jan 1, 2017
Mining has a very economic importance worldwide and remains an essential part of the economy in different countries (Nansai et al. in Environ Sci Technol 49(4):2022–2031, 2015; Galas and Galas in Resour Policy 49:204–212, 2016).

A Time Space Groundwater Contamination investigation in an Industrial Site using Geophysical and Hydrochemical Methods

T. Marques et 5 al.

Jan 1, 2018
The industrial chemical complex of Estarreja (ICCE), lat 40°45′N, long 8°35′ W, operates since the 1950’s. Several plants have disposed locally residues and effluents, discharging them into natural water lines, opening channels, surface and buried deposits, in an area that houses an important aquifer system. These residues range from heavy metals to organic compounds. The area around the ICCE has...

A Joint Geophysical and Geochemical Survey in the Old Braçal-Malhada Mining District (NE Aveiro, Portugal)

V. Valente, M. Matias et 7 al.

Jan 1, 2018
The Bracal –Malhada mining region, 30km NE of Aveiro included several silver-lead mines that operated until mid 20th century. Mineralization consists on sulphides (galena, sphalerite, pyrite) in quartz veins occurring in the complex Porto-Tomar shear zone, Fig. 1 . Veins develop in a 10km wide area, show different orientations, are found in granites, schists and even quartzite, and can pass throu...

Cost-efficiency improvement of bivalves shells preparation when tracing their geographic origin through ICP-MS analysis of elemental fingerprints

Fernando Ricardo et 7 al.

Jan 1, 2020 in Food Control
Developing methodologies employed to trace the geographic origin of seafood as accurate and fast as possible can help to speed-up the delivery of results to legal authorities, reduce associated costs and minimize environmental impacts (associated with the residues generated). The present study evaluated if trace element fingerprints (TEF) of a small homogenized subsample of Manila clams (Ruditape...

Inorganic Pollutants in Soils

Carla Patinha, Nuno Durães et 3 al.

Jan 1, 2018
Soil is a major reservoir for Potential Toxic Elements (PTEs). These PTEs can occur in various forms in soil and different bonding forces keep them bound to soil particles. The high concentrations, form and availability of PTEs in environment, can compromise the soil ecosystem and the growth of plants. At the end of the chain PTEs may entering in human body by direct (inhalation or ingestion of s...
