Bioremediation of Pentachlorophenol and Bleach Plant Effluent by Trametes versicolor and its Extracellular Fluid, Focused on Intermediates and Products Formed and the Role of Protein Binding of Chlorinated Compounds in a Two-stage Reactor System 

Bethune, Kristie (2005-08-15)
Bioremediation of pentachlorophenol (PCP) from aqueous solutions can provide valuable methods to remove other toxins from aqueous solutions, those that are more or less persistent or toxic than PCP. Understanding the ...

Biotic and abiotic factors affecting the distribution of Paddlefish Polyodon Spathula in William “Bill” Dannelly Reservoir and the Cahaba River, Alabama. 

Smith, Chris (2023-12-06)
Paddlefish Polyodon spathula river section use, and summer backwater use (where zooplankton is thought to be abundant) vary seasonally. I quantified Paddlefish habitat use in Dannelly Reservoir, Alabama, which includes the ...

Biotic Composition and Taphonomy of an Upper Cretaceous Konservat-Lagerstätte: The Ingersoll Shale, Eutaw Formation, Eastern Alabama 

Knight, Terrell (2007-08-15)
The Ingersoll shale is a thin (<1m), laterally restricted clay lens within the Upper Cretaceous (Santonian) Eutaw Formation, Russell County, eastern Alabama. The clay lens represents abandoned tidal creek fill within an ...

Biotransformation of Perfluorooctane Sulfonamide (FOSA), 8:2 Fluorotelomer Alcohol (8:2 FTOH), and 6:2 Fluorotelomer Sulfonate (6:2 FTS) in Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF)-Impacted Soils under Oxic and Anoxic Conditions 

Yan, Pengfei (2022-12-05)  ETD File Embargoed
The use of aqueous film-forming foams (AFFFs) for fire suppression over decades has resulted in contamination of numerous sites by per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). However, the environmental fate and transformation ...

Bipedal Impact with Granular Matter 

Banu, Eliza (2014-11-06)
Impact with granular matter has been of great interest to researchers for decades, mainly because the material, as a conglomeration of discrete solids, behaves as a fluid until a solid like behavior becomes established. ...

Bipolar Electrochemistry: A Powerful Technique for Chemical Analysis and Property Screening 

Ndzesse Sanghapi, Axline (2013-04-23)
The phenomenon of bipolar electrochemistry was first exploited about three decades ago in the industrial sector to minimize power dissipation and to carry out electrochemical reactions in poorly conducting media. However, ...
