METAL SYSTEMS AS TOOLS FOR SOIL REMEDIATION
Floris, B., P. Galloni, F. Sabuzi, and V. Conte.
Inorganica Chimica Acta 455(pt 2):429-445(2017)

Review of research aimed at soil remediation with metal systems (as found in literature to the end of 2015) is presented with consideration of both inorganic and organic contaminants. The following technologies are reviewed: minerals and bulk metals systems as adsorbent materials in abiotic soil; metal nanoparticles; metal porphyrins-catalyzed chemical oxidation; metal-modified Fenton systems; and metal-enhanced electrokinetic methods. Both heterogeneous and homogeneous systems are discussed and illustrated with field applications, where available, with attention to the intrinsic difficulties of in situ application.
