Dye‐sensitized Devices: Photovoltaic and Photoelectrolytic Applications
Dye‐sensitized approach along with stability and surface robustness in titanium dioxide (TiO2) against photocorrosion and degradation has been widely studied and applied in several important applications. This chapter ...
Bioavailability of Xenobiotics in the Soil Environment
When synthetic, xenobiotic compounds such as agrochemicals and industrial chemicals are utilized, they eventually reach the soil environment where they are subject to degradation, leaching, volatilization, sorption, and ...
Biodegradation of Pharmaceuticals by Fungi and Metabolites Identification
Pharmaceutical compounds comprise a widely employed group of therapeutic agents now considered as emerging micropollutants. This chapter summarizes the state of the art in the degradation of pharmaceuticals by fungi ...
Biodiversity Prospecting: The INBio Experience
Bioprospecting is defined as the systematic search for genes, compounds, designs, and organisms that might have a potential economic use and might lead to a product development. In 1991, Costa Rica's National Institute of ...
Alternative approaches to determine the efficiency of biomixtures used for pesticide degradation in biopurification systems
Biopurification systems were developed for the biological treatment of pesticide-containing wastewaters originated from agricultural production. They are aimed at reducing point-source contamination related to the ...
Biodiversity for Bioindustries
Biodiversity refers to the variety and variability of living material and ecological complexes in a given area and comprises species, genetic and ecosystem diversity. Biodiversity is not only the basis of life on earth, ...
Fusarium: more than a node or a foot-shaped basal cell
Recent publications have argued that there are potentially serious consequences for researchers in recognising distinct genera in the terminal fusarioid clade of the family Nectriaceae. Thus, an alternate hypothesis, namely ...
