Biodegradation and toxicological evaluation of lubricant oils
(Brazilian Archives of Biology and Technology, 2012-12-01) [Artigo]
The aim of this work was to compare different toxicity levels of lubricant oils. The tests were performed using the earthworm (Eisenia andrei), arugula seeds (Eruca sativa) and lettuce seeds (Lactuca sativa), with three ...
Metabolical shifts towards alternative BTEX biodegradation intermediates induced by perfluorinated compounds in firefighting foams
(Chemosphere, 2017-01-01) [Artigo]
The type and concentration of perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) can induce different types of enzymes and promote alternate patterns of BTEX transformation. However, it is not known how the presence of active fluorocarbon-degrading ...
Wastewater containing 1,2-Dihydro-2,2,4-Trimethylquinoleyn treated by electrolysis and respirometric method
(Journal of Waste Water Treatment & Analysis, 2010) [Artigo]
The electrolytic treatment of a real industrial effl uent and simulated wastewater containing the 1,2-dihydro- 2,2,4-trimethylquinoleyn compound (Naugard Q®) had been investigated in order to improve the wastewater ...
Screening the toxicity and biodegradability of petroleum hydrocarbons by a rapid colorimetric method
(Archives Of Environmental Contamination And Toxicology, 2015-02-01) [Artigo]
Crude oil and petroleum products have a wide variety of hazardous components with high toxicity and low biodegradability. Certain dyes change their colors by intercepting electron transfer reactions during the transformation ...
