- ... The presence of contaminants in potable water is a cause of worldwide concern. In particular, the presence of metals such as arsenic, lead, cadmium, mercury, chromium can affect human health. There is thus a need for advanced techniques of water decontamination. Adsorbents based on cerium dioxide (CeO₂), also named ‘ceria,’ have been used to remove contaminants such as arsenic, fluoride, lead and ...

- ... Contamination of freshwater fish with toxic heavy metals and metalloids is a major environmental issue in terms of public health. For instance, Cd, Pb, Hg and As are biologically non-essential elements with known adverse effects. Consumption of fish contaminated with metals thus poses a risk to human health. Here we review the bioaccumulation of Cd, Pb, Hg and As in freshwater fish, and we discuss ...
