Project Description

Princeton University: Mercury Cycling and Methylation
Mercury is one of the most toxic trace elements. Because of the volatility of elemental mercury (Hg0) and the high reactivity of the mercuric ion (Hg2+), it is also one of the most elusive. The globa...

Princeton University: Metal Complexing Agents
In natural waters and in culture media, the bioavailability of trace metals to microorganisms depends on their binding to a variety of weak and strong complexing agents.  See also  Metal ...

Prionceton University: The Biological Role of Cadmium
Cadmium, (Cd), an element which has been thought to be only toxic to organisms, behaves exactly like a nutrient in the sea: it is depleted to very low concentrations as result of biological uptake a...

Proflux: Processes and fluxes of mercury and methylmercury in a conjtaminated coasta ecosystem (Targus estuary, Portugal)
This project aims to identify the major processes responsible for the mercury escape from hotspot areas, including the methylation and demethylation, to quantify Hg fluxes between sediment, water and ...

Research Overview: Environmental Soil Geochemistry
Countless geochemical and environmental processes occur on the microscopic-scale. As such, a fundamental understanding of these microscopic phenomena is necessary to understand the influence of these ...

Research › Trace element dynamics in soils and plant uptake
The objectives of this project are:  to quantify the dynamics of different chemical species of trace elements in soil using techniques such as HPLC-ICP-MS and synchrotron radiation X-ray absorp...

Selenium and Vitamin E Cancer Prevention Trial
The Selenium and Vitamin E Cancer Prevention Trial (SELECT) is a research study to determine if selenium and vitamin E can help prevent prostate cancer. SELECT is funded by ...

Selenium speciation and bioavailability
The aim of the project is to characterise molecular forms (species) of selenium in food of plant and animal origin. Furthermore, the research aims at assessing the bioavailability in humans of seleniu...

Selenium speciation in biological material
The essential trace mineral, selenium is indispensable for the function of the human body. Selenium exerts its effects via the selenoproteins that often participate in antioxidative or catalytic pro...

SIPE Standards Information Portal for Europe
The aim of SIPE is to promote and increase the use of research results in support of Standards (related to the environmental compartments air, water, soil and waste) to stakeholders from Research, S...

SNACS: Deposition and Fate of Mercury
now and ice processes in the deposition and fate of mercury in the Arctic. Lead PI: Matthew Sturm, Cold Regions Research and Enginnering Lab Project SummaryPrincipal Investigators Atm...

Spain: Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (IDĆA) - Spanish National Research Council (CSIC)
We conduct research in Organometallic Compounds in the Environment, paying special attention in the Biogeochemical Cycling of Mercury in Aquatic Environments. Mercury (Hg) is a ubiqui...

SPECIATION ANALYSIS OF TRACE AND ULTRATRACE ELEMENTS IN LIVING ORGANISMS: NEW ADVANCES AND IMPLICATIONS FOR PROTEOMICS
The main goal of this Project is to allow to continue the basic and instrumental research carried out by the Analytical Spectrometry Group of Oviedo´s University. The general objecti...

Speciation and Attenuation of Arsenic and Selenium at Coal Combustion By-Product Management Facilities
The overall objective of this project is to evaluate the impact of key constituents captured from power plant air streams (arsenic, selenium and mercury) on the disposal and utilization of coal combus...

Speciation, bioavailability and antigenotoxicity of Selenium species present in Selenium enriched natural products.
Nowadays, it is well known that Selenium plays an important role as chemopreventive agent in carcinogenesis and that is the reason why it has been widely used in nutritional supplements. This ...
