Geochemical reaction mechanism discovery from molecular simulation 
Andrew G. Stack and Paul R. C. Kent

Environmental context. Computational simulations are providing an increasingly useful way to isolate specific geochemical and environmental reactions and to test how important they are to the overall rate. In this review, we summarise a few ways that one can simulate a reaction and discuss each technique’s overall strengths and weaknesses. Selected case studies illustrate how these techniques have helped to improve our understanding for geochemical and environmental problems.

Seasonal distributions and sources of low molecular weight dicarboxylic acids, ω-oxocarboxylic acids, pyruvic acid, α-dicarbonyls and fatty acids in ambient aerosols from subtropical Okinawa in the western Pacific Rim 
Bhagawati Kunwar and Kimitaka Kawamura

Environmental context. Water-soluble dicarboxylic acids and related compounds are ubiquitous in atmospheric aerosols. They are abundantly emitted from Asian countries and transported to the Pacific Ocean. During the long-range transport, photochemical processing modifies organic aerosols. We conducted a 1-year observation of diacids and related compounds at Okinawa Island, an outflow region of the Asian Continent, to clarify their sources and photochemical aging.

Comparative analyses of cadmium and zinc uptake correlated with changes in natural resistance-associated macrophage protein (NRAMP) expression in Solanum nigrum L. and Brassica rapa 
Y. Song, L. Hudek, D. Freestone, J. Puhui, A. A. Michalczyk, Z. Senlin and M. L. Ackland

Environmental context. Soils contaminated with metals can pose both environmental and human health risks. This study showed that a common crop vegetable grown in the presence of cadmium and zinc readily accumulated these metals, and thus could be a source of toxicity when eaten. The work highlights potential health risks from consuming crops grown on contaminated soils.

Two dispersive liquid–liquid microextraction methods coupled with gas chromatography–mass spectrometry for the determination of organophosphorus pesticides in field water 
Shang-Ping Chu, Chun-Kai Huang, Pai-Shan Chen and Shang-Da Huang

Environmental context. Conventional sample pretreatment for the determination of pesticides in environmental samples is time consuming and labour intensive. We report two dispersive liquid–liquid micro-extraction methods that provide rapid homogeneous emulsification in aqueous samples within 2 min. These simple and environmentally friendly extraction methods are particularly suitable for the measurement of organophosphorus pesticides in field water.

Oxidation of CrIII aminocarboxylate complexes by hydrous manganese oxide: products and time course behaviour 
Richard F. Carbonaro and Alan T. Stone

Environmental context. Oxidation of CrIII (trivalent chromium) to CrVI (hexavalent chromium) is of environmental concern because CrVI is a known mutagen and carcinogen. Our results show that hydrous manganese oxide (HMO) is capable of oxidising soluble CrIII complexed with iminodiacetic acid and nitrilotriacetic acid to CrVI at appreciable rates. CrVI production from soluble CrIII organic complexes is therefore expected to occur in natural and engineered systems that contain HMO.

Long term PM2.5 trends in the Australian industrial city of Newcastle: a 15-year study from 1998 to 2013 
Eduard Stelcer, David D. Cohen and Armand J. Atanacio

Environmental context. Long-term exposure to fine particle air pollution has significant implications for human health. At a mixed urban–industrial site in Newcastle, Australia, we identified contributions from individual industrial aerosol sources in addition to the more common aerosol sources such as soil, sea and smoke. These results are significant for the assessment and management of fine particulate air pollution in the Newcastle air shed.

Dissolution of metal and metal oxide nanoparticles under natural freshwater conditions 
Niksa Odzak, David Kistler, Renata Behra and Laura Sigg

Environmental context. Engineered nanomaterials (e.g. silver, zinc oxide and copper oxide) are being widely used in many consumer products such are cosmetics, food packaging and textiles. During their usage and treatment, they will be released to natural waters and partly dissolve, depending on the water type and nanomaterial characteristics. These nanomaterials may thus have some toxic effects to aquatic organisms and indirectly to humans because of higher concentrations of dissolved silver, zinc and copper in natural waters.

Voltammetric study of an FeS layer on a Hg electrode in supersaturated FeS chloride solution 
D. Krznarić and I. Ciglenečki

Environmental context. During the electrochemical analysis of natural waters, the Hg electrode could become the site for surface metal sulfide formation, such as FeS, which can have significant influence on the voltammetric determination of FeII. Reduction of FeII in such conditions can occur both on the bare Hg surface and on the FeS-modified Hg surface. Until recently, measurements of FeII have considered only the signal obtained from reduction on the bare Hg surface, and hence may have underdetermined the true FeII content of natural samples.

In vitro cytotoxicity assessment of a hydraulic fracturing fluid 
Madeleine E. Payne, Heather F. Chapman, Janet Cumming and Frederic D. L. Leusch

Environmental context. Hydraulic fracturing fluids, used in large volumes by the coal seam gas mining industry, are potentially present in the environment either in underground formations or in mine wastewater (produced water). Previous studies of the human health and environmental effects of this practice have been limited because they use only desktop methods and have not considered combined mixture toxicity. We use a novel in vitro method for toxicity assessment, and describe the toxicity of a hydraulic fracturing fluid on a human gastrointestinal cell line.

Microbial fuel cells under extreme salinity: performance and microbial analysis 
Oihane Monzon, Yu Yang, Cong Yu, Qilin Li and Pedro J. J. Alvarez

Environmental context. The treatment of extremely saline, high-strength wastewaters while producing electricity represents a great opportunity to mitigate environmental effects and recover resources associated with wastes from shale oil and gas production. This paper demonstrates that extreme halophilic microbes can produce electricity at salinity up to 3- to 7-fold higher than sea water.

Arsenic mobility and toxicity in South and South-east Asia – a review on biogeochemistry, health and socio-economic effects, remediation and risk predictions 
blank image
E. Marie Muehe and Andreas Kappler
pp. 483-495

Environmental context. The presence of high arsenic concentrations in South and South-east Asian groundwater causes dramatic health issues for the local population. As a consequence, scientists, governments and agencies investigate arsenic-related health issues and arsenic origin, fate and behaviour in ground- and drinking water and have started to provide remediation and mitigation strategies. This review broadly summarises our current knowledge on arsenic biogeochemistry, health and socio-economic effects, remediation and risk predications in Asia and discusses current and future research directions.

Arsenic cycling in freshwater phytoplankton and zooplankton cultures 
blank image
G. Caumette , I. Koch , K. House and K. J. Reimer
pp. 496-505

Environmental context. Understanding how arsenic is changed from toxic to non-toxic chemical forms in lakes and rivers is important in understanding the overall risk from arsenic. Freshwater plankton exposed in laboratory cultures to different sources of toxic inorganic arsenate formed arsenosugars, but at higher exposure levels, in water and through contaminated sediment, inorganic arsenate remained unchanged. In arsenic-contaminated freshwater bodies, plankton may provide a source of toxic inorganic arsenic to consumers.

Xi-Mei Xue , Georg Raber , Simon Foster , Song-Can Chen , Kevin A. Francesconi and Yong-Guan Zhu
pp. 506-513

Environmental context. Arsenic biotransformation processes play a key role in the cycling of arsenic in aquatic systems. We show that a freshwater cyanobacterium can convert inorganic arsenic into arsenolipids, and the conversion efficiency depends on the arsenic concentration. The role of these novel arsenic compounds remains to be elucidated.

Release of arsenite, arsenate and methyl-arsenic species from streambed sediment affected by acid mine drainage: a microcosm study 
blank image
Marina Héry , Corinne Casiot , Eléonore Resongles , Zoe Gallice , Odile Bruneel , Angélique Desoeuvre and Sophie Delpoux
pp. 514-524

Environmental context. Arsenic-rich waters generated from the oxidation of mining wastes are responsible for the severe contamination of river waters and sediments located downstream from mining sites. Under certain environmental conditions, the affected riverbed sediments may represent a reservoir for arsenic from which this toxic element may be released into water, mainly as a consequence of microbial activity.

Karen Wovkulich , Martin Stute , Brian J. Mailloux , Alison R. Keimowitz , James Ross , Benjamin Bostick , Jing Sun and Steven N. Chillrud
pp. 525-537

Environmental context. Arsenic is one of the most common contaminants at US Superfund sites; therefore, establishing techniques to accelerate As remediation could benefit many sites. In a pilot scale study, we determined that addition of oxalic acid to the subsurface has the potential to increase arsenic release from sediments and possibly improve remediation efficiency by pump and treat techniques. Because pump and treat remediation can require many decades to sufficiently decrease contaminant levels, methods for improving remediation could lead to substantial savings in time and resources.

pp. 538-546

Environmental context. The use of groundwater with elevated concentrations of arsenic for drinking, cooking or irrigation has resulted in the worst mass poisoning in human history. This study shows that organic compounds that can be found in arsenic rich subsurface sediments may be used by indigenous microorganisms, contributing to the release of arsenic from the sediments into the groundwater. This study increases our understanding of the range of organic substrates (and their sources) that can potentially stimulate arsenic mobilisation into groundwaters.

Factors affecting arsenic and uranium removal with zero-valent iron: laboratory tests with Kanchan-type iron nail filter columns with different groundwaters 
blank image
Christine B. Wenk , Ralf Kaegi and Stephan J. Hug
pp. 547-557

Environmental context. Tens of millions of people worldwide depend on groundwater with naturally high arsenic concentrations for drinking and cooking. We studied simple filters built with locally available and inexpensive iron nails, which can oxidise and bind arsenic in forming iron oxides and rust layers. Filters containing iron are being successfully applied in several regions, but efficiencies depend on the type of groundwater, and sufficiently large iron surfaces and contact times with water are needed for good arsenic removal.

Effectiveness of various sorbents and biological oxidation in the removal of arsenic species from groundwater 
blank image
Anna Corsini , Lucia Cavalca , Gerard Muyzer and Patrizia Zaccheo
pp. 558-565

Environmental context. Arsenic contamination of aquifers is a worldwide public health concern and several technologies have been developed to reduce the arsenic content of groundwater. We investigated the efficiency of various materials for arsenic removal from groundwater and found that iron-based sorbents have great affinity for arsenic even if groundwater composition can depress their ability to bind arsenic. Moreover, we showed that the use of microorganisms can enhance the removal of arsenic from groundwater.

Solid-phase characterisation of an effective household sand filter for As, Fe and Mn removal from groundwater in Vietnam 
blank image
Andreas Voegelin , Ralf Kaegi , Michael Berg , Katja Sonja Nitzsche , Andreas Kappler , Vi Mai Lan , Pham Thi Kim Trang , Jörg Göttlicher and Ralph Steininger
pp. 566-578

Environmental context. Household sand filters are widely used in Vietnam to remove As, Fe and Mn from groundwater used as drinking water. From the solid-phase characterisation of a sand filter that has been used for 8 years, we conclude that As and Fe are retained by a combination of fast sorption reactions, surface-catalysed Fe oxidation and mediated As co-oxidation and that microbial processes are probably involved in effective Mn retention. This study contributes to a better mechanistic understanding of filter functioning as a basis for further improvements in filter design and operation.

Deciphering and predicting spatial and temporal concentrations of arsenic within the Mekong Delta aquifer 
blank image
Benjamin D. Kocar , Shawn G. Benner and Scott Fendorf
pp. 579-594

Environmental context. Himalayan derived arsenic contaminates groundwater across Asia, ranging from the deltas of Ganges-Brahmaputra of Bangladesh to the interior basins of the Yangtze and Yellow Rivers in China, where more than one hundred million people are drinking water with hazardous levels of the toxin. Our ability to predict the distribution and changes in arsenic concentration in aquifers of affected regions has been limited. Here we provide a dynamic model that captures arsenic migration and can be used to forecast changes in groundwater arsenic concentrations.

Improved groundwater geogenic arsenic hazard map for Cambodia 
blank image
C. Sovann and D. A. Polya
pp. 595-607

Environmental context. Groundwater arsenic is a major environmental risk to human health in many regions of the world, including Cambodia where groundwater is often used for drinking water. We present data for hitherto poorly sampled regions in Cambodia, notably around Tonle Sap and in the coastal provinces, and provide a geo-statistical model of arsenic in shallow groundwater for the whole country.
