  • `Chemical fingerprints` could reveal source of mercury pollution

    Scientists have described a new method for tracking down the source of mercury pollution from burning coal. By analysing the chemistry of the pollution, it is possible to identify which region the coal was originally from. Mercury pollution in the atmosphere comes mainly from coal-fired power stations and chemical plants. Mercury is naturally present in coal and is emitted when it is burned as ...

  • Mercury-resistant bacteria useful for studying toxic metal cycling

    Mercury-resistant bacteria could help scientists to understand more about mercury cycling in the environment. In a new study, researchers identified one particular strain of soil bacterium that could serve as a model for the conversion of the toxic metal into less toxic forms. They also discovered a new gene involved in the conversion process. Bacteria play an important role in the cycling of ...
