      Effects of salt stress, water table, and their combination on growth, chlorophyll content, antioxidant system, and ion accumulation in Suaeda salsa plant were studied. The results indicated that S. salsa could adapt to the adverse soil environments through modifying their growth and physiology status.

    2. Electrokinetic Restoration of Sulfate-Accumulated Saline Greenhouse Soil (pages 1036–1040)

      The electrokinetic process to restore sulfate-accumulated saline soil and to reduce soil EC was used by applying a longer treatment duration. After the electrokinetic process, the 16-day experiment met the EC guideline value (2.0 dS/m). These experimental results suggest that this process is a promising technology.

    3. Characterization of Organic Contaminants in New York/New Jersey Harbor Sediments Using FTIR-ATR and Synchrotron FTIR (pages 1041–1049)

    5. Adsorption Kinetics, Isotherms, and Desorption of Monocrotophos and Dichlorvos on Various Indian Soils (pages 1060–1067)

      Paramjeet Kaur and Dhiraj Sud

      Article first published online: 28 OCT 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/clen.201000289

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      This study investigated the equilibrium and the dynamics of the adsorption of the pesticides monocrotophos and dichlorvos on three different soils. The higher adsorption of MCP and DDVP on sandy soil indicates a mobility with potential to leach and eventually pollute ground and surface water.

      The results of this study provide valuable information suggests that physicians should help their patients select drinking water that contains the mineral content, i.e., most appropriate to their individual dietary needs.

    7. Selective Separation/Preconcentration of Silver Ion in Water by Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes Microcolumn as a Sorbent (pages 1081–1086)

      Pourya Biparva and Mohammad Reza Hadjmohammadi

      Article first published online: 8 NOV 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/clen.201000198

      Multiwalled carbon nanotubes were used as a solid adsorbent for selective separation/preconcentration of silver(I) at ng L−1 levels in water. The advantages of the present SPE method are the simplicity, speediness, and the economic aspect.

    8. Assessment of the Biosorption Characteristics of a Spent Cottonseed Husk Substrate for the Decolorization of Methylene Blue (pages 1087–1094)

      Qi Zhou, Wenqi Gong, Dongjiang Yang, Chuanxin Xie, Yubiao Li, Xiafang Liu, Cuiping Bai and Rui Wang

      Article first published online: 8 NOV 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/clen.201000415

      Article first published online: 28 OCT 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/clen.201100036

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The efficiencies of phosphorus and nitrogen removal and the recovery by struvite precipitation and air stripping were investigated. The results suggest that struvite precipitation is a highly efficient method for removing phosphorus from diluted and undiluted urine. In both cases, PO4-P-removal efficiencies of 98% could be achieved.
