Accumulation of Heavy Metals and Arsenic by Medicinal Plant Raw Material of Bitter Hollow

The Voronezh region is traditionally the most important area of crop production and farming. The purpose of the study was to study the contamination by heavy metals of medicinal vegetable raw materials of the Voronezh region using the example of grass of the bitter emery collected in urban and agro-ecological systems, which experience various anthropogenic effects. The accumulations of heavy metals (lead, mercury, cadmium, nickel, copper, zinc, cobalt, chromium) and arsenic were studied, in 51 samples of pooch grass bitter.

Extraction-Photometric Determination of Cobalt (II) with Hydroxytiophenols and Hydrophobic Amines

The possibility of using hydroxythiophenols (HTP) for the photometric determination of cobalt (II) has been studied. Aminophenols (AP) were used as hydrophobic amine: 2- (N,N-methylamino methyl)-phenol (AP1) and 2- (N, N-methylaminomethyl) -4-methylphenol (AP2). Dichloroethane, chloroform and carbon tetrachloride turned out to be the best extractants. With a single extraction with chloroform, 97.5–99.5% of cobalt is recovered as a complex. The cobalt (II) complex is extracted into chloroform in the pH range of 3.6–6.3.

Synthesis and Structure Mixedligand Complexes of Fe, Co and Ni with Dimerkaptophenols and Heterocyclic Diamines

Physico-chemical methods investigated complexing Fe (II, III), Co (II) and Ni (II) with di mer kap tophenols (2,6-dimerkaptophenol, 2,6-dimercapto- 4-methylphenol, 2,6-dimercapto-4-ethy l phenol, 2,6-dimercapto-4-propylphenol and 2,6-dimercapto-4-tert-butylphenol), and hyd rophobic amines. The hydrophobic amine were used as heterocyclic diamine- 1,10-phenan thro line, 2,2’-bipyridyl and 4,7-diphenyl-1,10-phenanthroline (batofenantrolin). The optimal conditions for the formation and extraction mixedligand complexes and set the ratio of the components in the complexes.
