Reductive Immobilization of Rhenium in Water and Soil Using Stabilized Iron Nanoparticles
Laboratory batch and column experiments were conducted to investigate the feasibility of using a new class of stabilized zero-valent iron (ZVI) nanoparticles for in situ reductive immobilization of Re (VI) in water and in a sandy loam soil. Column experiments indicated that the stabilized ZVI nanoparticles are highly deliverable in the soil column. The stabilized ZVI nanoparticles may serve as a highly soil-dispersible and effective agent for in situ reductive immobilization of rhenium soils, groundwater, or industrial wastes.
