  • Determination of arsenic in baby foods and fruit juices by GFAAS

    The United States does not have specific regulations specifying the allowable levels of toxic elements in foods, but many other countries do. For example, Canada has a specific tolerance level for arsenic of 0.1 ppm in ready to serve fruit juices, nectars, and beverages1. The toxic nature of arsenic is such that chronic exposure to the element can lead to internal cancers of the bladder and ...

  • Mode of Action and Growth Toxicity of Arsenic to Tilapia Oreochromis mossambicus Can Be Determined Bioenergetically

    Abstract  We present a bioenergetics-based approach to analyze the chronic effects and growth toxicity mode of action in tilapia Oreochromis mossambicus exposed to waterborne As and to predict fish growth under different exposure scenarios. 7-day exposure bioassays showed that tilapia accumulate As when exposed to waterborne As. We conducted growth bioassays to assess chronic As toxicity to ...

  • Arsenic biotransference to alfalfa (Medicago sativa)

    The arsenic (As) concentration in the edible part of crops depends on the availability of the As present in the soil and the ability of a crop to take up As and translocate it to the target organs. The aim of this study was the determination of As concentration in soils and alfalfa (Medicago sativa) in field conditions and pot experiments to analyse As soil–forage transference. Results show that ...

  • How to Deal with Arsenic in Drinking Water

    Thanks to recent developments in technology, daily drinking water undergoes a rigorous treatment process for water to be consumable. This is because most ground and natural river waters have a chemical in them called arsenic. Arsenic is a metallic chemical element that is found commonly among rocks and sulfur in the Earth’s crust. Arsenic is known for getting into your drinking water from ...

  • Fate of As(V)-treated nano zero-valent iron: Determination of arsenic desorption potential under varying environmental conditions by phosphate extraction

    Nano zero-valent iron (NZVI) offers a promising approach for arsenic remediation in the subsurface environment, but the spent NZVI with elevated arsenic content left unattended at treated sites in subsurface could arouse safety concerns regarding the potential remobilization of arsenic under varying geochemical conditions. This paper presents a systematic study aimed at investigating the fate of ...

  • Arsenic(III) removal by adsorption on sawdust carbon

    Studies on the removal of As(III) by adsorption on sawdust and sawdust carbon have been carried out at room temperature (25 ± 1°C). The adsorption isotherm of As(III) on sawdust carbon was obtained in a batch reactor. The process of uptake follows the first-order adsorption rate expression and obeys the Langmuir and Freundlich model of adsorption. The mass transfer coefficients as a function of ...

  • Arsenic geochemistry in a biostimulated aquifer: An aqueous speciation study

    Stimulating microbial growth through the use of acetate injection wells at the former uranium mill site in Rifle, Colorado, USA, has been shown to decrease dissolved uranium (VI) concentrations through bacterial reduction to immobile uranium (IV). Bioreduction also changed the redox chemistry of site groundwater, altering the mobility of several other redox‐sensitive elements present in the ...

  • Solubility and Stability of Calcium Arsenates at 25 degress Celsius

    Abstract The solubility and stability of calcium arsenates at 25 ∘C was determined by both precipitation and dissolution experiments. Ca3(AsO4)2⋅ 3H2O(c), Ca3(AsO4)2⋅ 21/4H2O(c), Ca5(AsO4)3(OH)(c) and Ca4(OH)2(AsO4)2⋅ 4H2O(c) were identified in our experiment over a wide range of pH and for Ca/As molar ratios between 1.25 and 4.0. The solids precipitated at pH = 3 ∼ ...


  • Ultra-trace arsenic speciation at Columbia Analytical

    Ultra-trace speciation of arsenic and other metals is performed using a variety of techniques tailored to the specific combination of species, matrix, and detection limits required. Currently, two analytical systems are applied: Ion Chromatography-Inductively Coupled Mass Spectrometry (IC-ICP-MS) and Hydride Generation-Cryogenic Gas Chromatography-Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrometry ...


  • Slow arsenic poisoning of the contaminated groundwater users

    This paper gives impact of Arsenic contaminated water on human health as well as overview of the extent and severity of groundwater arsenic contamination in Bangladesh. Scalp hair is the most important part of the human body to monitor the accumulation of this type of poison. Therefore, an experiment has been carried out by Neutron Activation Analysis (NAA) at Atomic Energy Research Establishment ...

  • Arsenic from community water fluoridation: quantifying the effect

    Community water fluoridation is a WHO recommended strategy to prevent dental carries. One debated concern is that hydrofluorosilicic acid, used to fluoridate water, contains arsenic and poses a health risk. This study was undertaken to determine if fluoridation contributes to arsenic in drinking water, to estimate the amount of additional arsenic associated with fluoridation, and compare this ...

  • What You Should Know about Arsenic Treatments

    The nutrients that you put into your body directly impact your health. If you consume water with harmful substances, bacteria, or metalloids, it could create serious issues. While not a metal, arsenic is considered a metalloid because it contains many of the same properties as metallic elements. Typically found in soil, arsenic is harmful when ingested. Unfortunately, many Americans unknowingly ...
