- ... A common way to research thermal conversion processes is through the analysis of chemical kinetics. In this article, a semi-quantitative method was established to calculate the chemical kinetics of biomass pyrolysis through differential and integral routes by using the thermal analysis–mass spectrometry (TA–MS) signals of pyrolytic products. The method can be applicable when there is a difficulty ...

- ... Abiotic transformation of As(III) to As(V) is possible which would decrease As toxicity. This study investigated the potential applications of zero-valent Al (ZVAl) or Al wastes, such as Al beverage cans, for converting As(III) to As(V) in an acidic solution under aerobic conditions. Results showed that As(III) could not be oxidized by ZVAl within 150 min reaction at pH 1 because of the presence o ...
