this study aimed to develop techniques for purification of cyanotoxins dissolved in water -particularly those produced by microcystis aeruginosa species - using natural clay, chemically modifiednatural clay, commercial clay and ion exchange and adsorbent resins. except for natural clay, chemical pretreatment was required to increase the adsorption capacity of the treatment materials. all the clays wereexposed to microcystin solutions of 0.5x10-3, 1.0x10-3 and 10.0x10-3 ?g/ml in batch purification processes. the same solutions were used in purification processes with polymeric resins packed in columns. the microcystin- lr samples were quantified using elisa immunoassay and removal capabilities and saturation of the treatment materials were evaluated. the modified clays showed a microcystin-lr removal efficiency rate between 82.90% and 99.86%, while the resins a rate between 87.6% and 99.74%. this study shows that the materials have technologically and economically promising properties for the removal of microcystins from water.

Application of barley straw to remove nitrate from drainage water

ABSTRACT-Nowadays farmers often use N-fertilizers to increase crop yield, but they lost quickly by leaching causes environmental contaminations that reported as most important source of pollutant. Although biofilters are useful for removing nitrate from drainage water, but many researches show that they need an external carbon source to sustain denitrification. Many researchers study on differe...

Histopathology and microcystin distribution in Lymnaea stagnalis (Gastropoda) following toxic cyanobacterial or dissolved microcystin-LR exposure.

The accumulation of hepatotoxic microcystins (MCs) in gastropods has been demonstrated to be higher following grazing of toxic cyanobacteria than from MCs dissolved in ambient water. Previous studies, however, did not adequately consider MCs covalently bound to protein phosphatases, which may represent a considerably part of the MC body burden. Thus, using an immunohistochemical method, we exam...

Interaction of microcystin-LR with SuperChar: water decontamination and therapy.

Activated charcoal (SuperChar) has been recommended for therapeutic use against poisoning by several toxic agents, but it has not been tested against microcystin-LR toxicosis. Microcystin-LR, a cyclic heptapeptide isolated from fresh water blue-green algae, has been shown to be a potent hepatotoxin in animals and in man. Studies were performed to determine the degree of in vitro adsorption of m...
