Cerium; cadmium; RADIOACTIVE WASTES
Aquatic plant Ludurigia stolonifera is used to absorb two toxic ions (Cd and Ce) from low level radioactive waste solutions. The effects of these toxic ions with three concentrations on the morphology, carbohydrates, proteins and nucleic acids (DNA, RNA) contents of the plant were studied. The results obtained in the present investigation showed a decrease in the weight of the plant, proteins, carbohydrates and nucleic acids contents with the increase in the concentration of toxic ions.
