    Abstract: The level of heavy metals concentrations of crude oil polluted soil and water was assessed in some coastal communities (Eket, Ibeno, EsitEket and Onna) of Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer. The mean values of the heavy metals determined were: Cr(0.1544±0.01), Cd(0.0137±0.00), Pb(0.0340±0.04), Ca(64.9360±1.55), Ni(0.... Show More

    Abstract: Honey is sweet, thick, syrup like, aromatic, semifluid or crystallized substance produced by bees after processing the flower nectar or nectar of living plants or other secretions (honeydew). Some insects collect it as food, enrich their secretions and transmit it in the honeycomb cells that cover the wax caps, and so preserve it of absorption, moi... Show More

    Abstract: Arsenic is a heavy metal and exists in an oxidation state of -3, 0, +3 or +5 which the As (III) is more toxic than other. Due to the extreme toxicity of As(III) in drinking water many research was done to find natural and economical adsorber for removing it from the water. Porous carbonaceous nanostructural materials have been widely used in the ad... Show More
