Abstract: Despite extensive research, the behaviour of the key nutrient element, phosphorus (P), in soil is not yet fully understood. This study focussed on the outstanding issue of the co-adsorption of protons (H+) and P by soils. We developed a congruent set of measures to determine the net H+:P co-adsorpti [...]

An Estimate of Possible Impacts of Superoxide Chemistry on Seawater pH: A Mapping Exercise

Marco Minella, Khan M. G. Mostofa, Cong-Qiang Liu, Davide Vione
Received: September 5, 2019; Published: January 21, 2020; doi:10.21926/obm.acr.2001004

Abstract: Superoxide, produced photochemically as well as microbially, is an important reactant present in seawater and a major source of hydrogen peroxide. Superoxide decay may occur through catalyzed or uncatalyzed dismutation forming H2O2 and O2, through oxidation to O2, or through reduction into H2O2. Und [...]

Vanadium: Biological, Environmental, and Engineering Aspects

Dieter Rehder
Received: December 18, 2019; Published: January 8, 2020; doi:10.21926/acr.2001002

Abstract: Vanadium is an element that is widely distributed in Earth’s crust as well as in sea-water and ground-water reservoirs. Therefore, it exerts a great influence on the issues related to life and environment. Vanadium is utilized by several marine organisms. For example, there are vanadate-dependent ha [...]
