- ... The presence of Zn in surface waters from abandoned mining zones is a critical issue since excess Zn concentrations may affect aquatic life and whole ecosystems. We present, for the first time, a simple tool based on a polymer inclusion membrane (PIM) intended to monitor Zn in river water by mimicking metal accumulation in the biofilm. The PIM-based probe contains a polymeric membrane prepared usi ...
