In this study, wheat straw-derived biochar was prepared by setting a temperature of 400 °C under an oxygen-limited environment using the technique of "programmed temperature increase control". The results showed that the biochar had a strong adsorption capacity for Hg2+ , Cd2+ and Pb2+ ions, and the adsorption pattern was Hg2+ >Cd2+ >Pb2+ . There was a competitive adsorption effect during the coexistence of the ions. The results of the soil remediation tests showed that the effects of biochar on soil physicochemical properties and heavy metal distribution was generally greater than those of KH2 PO4 in single or combined contaminated soil...

Silver nanoparticles have gained worldwide attention in the scientific community due to their high antimicrobial activity. However, they tend to agglomerate and lose their shape and properties, thus capping agents necessary to protect their shapes, sizes, and properties. To enhance their antimicrobial activity, this research aimed to cap silver nanoparticles with cellulosic matrices from wheat straws. The wheat straw was delignified with 6% HNO3, and the residual was treated with 1% NaOH and NaClO: CH3 COOH (1:1), then used to synthesize cellulose nanocrystals via acid hydrolysis...
