Cadmium biosorption by Bacillus circulans strain EB1
Yilmaz, EI; Ensari, NY (2005-07-01)
A heavy metal resistant bacterium, Bacillus circulans strain EB1 showed a high cadmium biosorption capacity coupled with a high tolerance to this metal when grown in its presence. Bacillus circulans EB1 cells grown in the presence of 28.1 mg cadmium/l were capable of removing cadmium with a specific biosorption capacity of 5.8 mg Cd/g dry wt biomass in the first 8 h. When the cells were pre-conditioned with low concentrations of cadmium in pre-grown medium, the uptake was increased to 6.7 mg Cd/g dry wt bio...
Cadmium removal using clinoptilolite : influence of conditioning and regeneration
Gedik, Kadir; İmamoğlu, İpek; Department of Environmental Engineering (2006)
Clinoptilolite samples obtained from two deposits in Turkey were tested for their potential in removing cadmium from aqueous solutions. Preliminary experiments in batch mode revealed inferior cadmium uptake at low pH. Particle size was found to have no effect on cadmium removal efficiency suggesting the use of exchangeable cations found in the internal/available sites. Increasing temperature yielded positive, whereas prewashing had no effect on cadmium removal using both clinoptilolite samples. The Langmuir...

Indium determination using slotted quartz tube-atom trap-flame atomic absorption spectrometry and interference studies
Arslan, Yasin; KENDÜZLER, ERDAL; Ataman, Osman Yavuz (2011-09-30)
Sensitivity enhancement of indium determination by flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS) was achieved: using a slotted quartz tube (SQT-FAAS) and slotted quartz tube atom trap (SQT-AT-FAAS). SQT was used as an atom trap (AT) where the analyte is accumulated in its inner wall prior to re-atomization. The signal is formed after re-atomization of analyte on the trap surface by introduction of 10 pi of isobutyl methyl ketone (IBMK). Sensitivity was improved 400 times using SQT-AT-FAAS system with respect ...
Radon concentration in hot springs of the touristic city of Sarein and methods to reduce radon in water
Jalili-Majareshin, A.; Behtash, A.; Rezaei-Ochbelagh, D. (2012-07-01)
The aim of this research was to measure the efficiency of various simple methods to decrease the concentration of radon in hot springs of the touristic city of Sarein (a touristic city in northwest Iran). With the aid of "RAD7" radon detector, concentrations in water varied from 212 Bq m(-3) to 3890 Bq m(-3). Using 250 mL. vials half-filled with water samples, our research showed that when the temperature of the water increased from 17 degrees C to 27 degrees C, the radon concentration decreased from 3230 B...
