Title

Fate and transport of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in phytoremediation systems

Author

Abstract

"Phytoremediation is the technology of treating contaminated soil and groundwater with plants. Since its advent, phytoremediation has been applied to the treatment of various contaminants. In the phytoremediation of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), several mechanistic pathways have been suggested, but these pathways have not been fully researched and described. This research focused on the processes involved in uptake and volatilization of organic compounds by plants."--Abstract, page iii.
