Extractions of Metals from Soils and Waters represents a new emphasis in the series Modern Inorganic Chemistry, namely the impact inorganic chemistry can have on the environment. Also, this is the first volume ever to introduce the reader to all aspects of heavy metal extraction. While the primary emphasis is on complexation chemistry, attention is also paid to phase transfer aspects. Particular methods of note include electrokinetics, phytoremediation, and sensors. Aimed primarily at chemists, this book will also appeal to engineers, plant biochemists, environmental health specialists, and practitioners or students of environmental law.uptake being particularly high for lead.26 Another approach to heavy metal remediation involves microwave energy. ... Both DCyTA and EGTA complexed strongly with cadmium (100% cadmium dissolution) over a wide pH range (2.5- 12.0). ... The capacity of the four chelators for removing cadmium from kaolin is in the order DCyTA agt; EGTA agt; EDTA agt; NTA.29 In terms of the selectivities for the removal ofanbsp;...
