Summary of "Effects of humic acid-modified magnetic FeO/MgAl-layered double hydroxide on the plant growth, soil enzyme activity, and metal availability."

The synthesis of a humic acid-layered double hydroxide (HA-LDH) hybrid was purposed for the remediation of contaminated soils in mining area. The hybrid was characterized by X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, Scanning electron microscope and energy dispersive spectrometer. In order to investigate the effect of HA-LDH on the mine soil, greenhouse experiments of Artemisia ordosica were carried out under different concentrations of amendments (0, 1%, 3%, 5%, 7%). The plant growth, metal availability, and soil enzyme activities were studied to determine the effects of HA-LDH. The mine soil with 5% HA-LDH was the optimum proportion, and the growth of Artemisia ordosica was in good status. The HA-LDH and Artemisia ordosica could effectively decrease the bioavailability of heavy metals (such as Pb, Cr, Ni, Cd, Zn, and As) in the mine soil, and improve the enzyme activities of β-glucosidase, urease, and phosphatase. The HA-LDH with magnetism could be easily separated. The characteristics and reusability of HA-LDH could be well maintained after five cycles of remediation. Consequently, the HA-LDH is promising for the remediation of contaminated soils in mining area.
