PUBLICATION: Enhancement of root immobilization potential in As-contaminated waters

Root iron plaque formation using Fe nanoparticles was studied for the first time and its distribution in P. australis roots was assessed by electron microscopic method (SEM-EDS). Increased iron plaque formation enhanced P. australis arsenic immobilization capacity.
