Photocatalytic Reduction of AuCl4- by Fe3O4/SiO2/TiO2 Nanoparticles


Eko Sri Kunarti et al. View all

Water and Wastewater Treatment

Metallurgy and recovery of gold in electronic waste sometimes involve the reduction of tetrachloroaurate ion (AuCl4-) to elemental gold form. Currently, for the reduction of tetrachloroaurate ion, people use reducing agents such as hydroquinone and sodium borohydride. Photocatalysts of Fe3O4/SiO2...

Distribution characteristics and health risk assessment of PAEs in urban soils of Changji City, Xinjiang, China


Yuyan Liu et al. View all

Environmental Sciences

Recent studies have indicated that PAEs (phthalic acid esters) are significant environmental pollutants with carcinogenic, teratogenic, and mutagenic effects. Urban soils can act as both a source and sink for city contaminants. This paper takes Changji, Xinjiang in Northwest China as the study area...
