Latest Iron(II) sulfide Stories
Containing dissolved oxygen concentrations of less than 2 or 3 parts per million, hypoxic waters in estuaries and sections of coastline are essentially “dead zones” where life cannot exist.
Researchers have devised a chemical probe that allows for the visualization of an important process in the human body - the generation of hydrogen sulfide, best known for its role in producing that “rotten egg” smell.
Effective Environmental Services has introduced a new sludge remover for use in ponds and lakes.
Hydrogen sulfide, known to many as ‘sewer gas,’ is a deadly substance that many evolutionary biologists blame for several mass extinction events throughout Earth’s history.
It stinks and strikes fear in the hearts of those who work underground, but the toxic gas hydrogen sulfide may be a lifesaver for patients with heart failure.
Sulfur (or Sulphur; see spelling below) is the chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol S and atomic number 16. It is an abundant, tasteless, odorless, multivalent non-metal. Sulfur, in its native form, is a yellow crystaline solid. In nature, it can be found as the pure element or as sulfide and sulfate minerals. It is an essential element for life and is found in several amino acids. Its commercial uses are primarily in fertilizers but it is also widely used in gunpowder,...
