Chloridazon (CLZ), also named as Pyrazon and classified as organochlorine pesticides, is widely used during sugar beets cultivation. CLZ being a pesticide with high solubility in water is likely to end up in surface and groundwater bodies because of its high mobility in soil. Due to its toxic properties, it may cause serious problems in human health and ecological cycle. In the present study, the removal of CLZ pesticide by Fenton and photo-Fenton processes was investigated. The effects of parameters such as H2O2, Fe(II), initial CLZ concentration, pH, and temperature were studied. It was observed that CLZ completely disappeared within 1 h and 20 min by the Fenton and photo-Fenton process, respectively, under optimal conditions. The optimal conditions for each processes were attained as 7.5 mg/L Fe(II), 50 mg/L H2O2, 40 mg/L initial CLZ, pH, and 20 degrees C for Fenton process, and 5 mg/L Fe2+, 50 mg/L H2O2, 60 mg/L initial CLZ, pH 3 and 20 degrees C for photo-Fenton process. The reaction kinetics of CLZ followed Behnajady-Modirdhahla-Ghanbery kinetic model. Desphenyl CLZ, pyridazine-3,4,5-trione, oxaluric acid, and 5-hydroxyhydantion were identified as CLZ degradation by-products. Accordingly, the degradation pathway was proposed.

Removal of endocrine disrupter compounds and trace organics in membrane bioreactors
Komesli, Okan Tarik; Gökçay, Celal Ferdi; Department of Environmental Engineering (2012)
Endocrine disrupters and trace organic contaminants are recently recognized contaminants in wastewaters. Current concept is the multibarier approach where the contaminants are removed from the water cycle both by water and wastewater treatment facilities, as well as natural die-away. In this thesis work LC/MS/MS determination of selected EDC compounds, namely, diltiazem, progesterone, estrone, carbamazepine, benzyl butyl phthalate and acetaminophen, at ultra trace levels, have been carried out by optimizing...
Effect of emodin on doxorubicin-induced cytotoxicity and apoptosis on MCF-7 and MCF-10a cells

Emodin (3-Methyl-1,6,8-trihydroxyanthraquinone), is a phytoestrogenic component of Rheum and Polygonum plant extracts which has been used to treat several diseases since ancient times. It has been shown to have anti-microbial, anti-oxidant and anti-cancer effects in nature. The anti-tumor drug doxorubicin, a widely used chemotherapeutic agent, is used for the treatment of many cancer types including lung, gastric, ovarian and breast cancer. In this study, the effects of pre-, co- and alone treatment of doxo...
Microarray based expression profiling of barley under boron stress and cloning of 3H boron tolerance gene
Öz, Mehmet Tufan; Eyidoğan, Füsun; Öktem, Hüseyin Avni; Department of Biotechnology (2012)
Both deficiency and toxicity of the essential micronutrient boron (B) lead to reduced crop yield in agriculture. However, our understanding of the molecular responses of plants under B stresses to tackle the yield loss is limited. Therefore, in the present study, transcriptional alterations in sensitive and tolerant barley cultivars under B deficiency and toxicity were investigated in order to reveal the molecular responses. Transcriptomes were monitored at seedling stage by global expression profiling usin...
Removal of boron from aqueous solutions by continuous polymer-enhanced ultrafiltration with polyvinyl alcohol
Dilek, C; Ozbelge, HO; Bicak, N; Yılmaz, Levent (2002-01-01)
Boron is a highly contaminating metal due to its toxic effects for plants even at very low concentrations. Continuous polymer-enhanced ultrafiltration (PEUF) was applied for removal of boron from aqueous solutions. The effects of operating parameters on the performance of PEUF were investigated. A commercial polymer, polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) was used as the boron-complexing agent. The methodology consists of two steps: complexing boron with PVA following separation of boron and polymer complexes by ultrafilt...
