Application of micronucleus test and comet assay to evaluate BTEX biodegradation
(Chemosphere, 2013-01-01) [Artigo]
The BTEX (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene) mixture is an environmental pollutant that has a high potential to contaminate water resources, especially groundwater. The bioremediation process by microorganisms has ...
Acid dye biodegradation using saccharomyces cerevisiae immobilized with polyethyleneimine-treated sugarcane bagasse
(Water, Air, and Soil Pollution, 2013-01-01) [Artigo]
Chemical reagents used by the textile industry are very diverse in their composition, ranging from inorganic compounds to polymeric compounds. Strong color is the most notable characteristic of textile effluents, and a ...
FT-IR analysis of acid black dye biodegradation using saccharomyces cerevisiae immobilized with treated sugarcane bagasse
(Water, Air, and Soil Pollution, 2013-06-17) [Artigo]
Textile industries use large amounts of water in dyeing processes and a wide variety of synthetic dyes. A small concentration of these dyes in the environment can generate highly visible pollution and changes in aquatic ...
