    Article
    Open Access
    Fundamental studies of the interaction of adsorbates with metal oxides alone and on which a noble metal is deposited provide information needed for catalytic reactions. Rh/CeO2 is one of the textbook catalysts for many ...
  • Recovery and separation of valuable metals (copper and zinc) from acidic mine waters by ion-exchange resins 

    Vecino Bello, Xanel; Reig i Amat, Mònica; López Rodríguez, Julio; Valderrama Angel, César Alberto; Gibert Agulló, Oriol; Cortina Pallás, José Luís (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Mining wastewaters, containing heavy metals such as copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn), have a huge impact on the environment due to they are not biodegradable and tend to bioaccumulate in plants or living organisms. Therefore, in ...
