Abstract

original image

Mesoporous hydride silica sorbents that exhibit rapid redox removal of ionic mercury from aqueous solutions are presented on p. 4126 ff. by K. V. Katok et al. and suggested as potential candidates for materials that can be used for mercury decontamination in natural waters and industrial effluents.
