Uptake of cyanides into plants - risk or chance for phytoremediation?

Project Details

Description

Plants have detoxification systems for cyanides. Free cyanide is quickly taken up into plants, but low dosages are also quickly metabolised. The project investigates toxicity, uptake and fate of free and iron complexed cyanides from nutrient solution and soil. The results are needed to evaluate the probable success of the phytoremediation of gas work Holte, Søllerød
