DEVELOPMENT OF PHYTO-REMEDIATION MODELS FOR LEAD CONTAMINATED SOIL FOR POTTED EXPERIMENTS IN ENUGU NORTH L.G.A., ENUGU STATE, NIGERIA

Abstract The study, development of phyto-remediation models for lead (Pb) contaminated soil in Enugu North L.G.A., Enugu State, Nigeria.  was conducted in potted experiments with six different level of Pb contamination. The experimental design was 2-factorial combination (6×1). The experimental duration was 10 weeks period. Analyzed results of the Pb content of the soil in intervals of two weeks during the study period and the Pb content of the plants’ root at week 10 were adopted for the study. The data collected were subjected to regression analysis, optimization and evaluation to obtain models of phyto-remediation for Pb in the contaminated soil. 

IMPERATIVE OF FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT INNOVATIONS TO SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIC GROWTH IN NIGERIA

STATISTCAL ANALYSS OF HEAT TREATMENT PARAMETER AND CORROSION BEHAVIOUR OF 800H SERIES Ni-Fe SUPERALLOY in H2SO4 SOLUTION

Abstract

The experiment involves the investigation of the correlation between heat treatment parameter and corrosion behavior of 800H Ni-Fe superalloy in H2SO4 solution. The sample was produced by spark plasma sintering (SPS) and was heat treated at temperatures of 800 and 10000C and time of 1 and 2 hours at each temperature. Potentiodynammic anodic polarization techniques were used to carry out

ADOPTION OF IFRS AND FINANCIAL STATEMENT EFFECTS: THE PERCEIVED IMPLICATIONS ON FDI GHANA ECONOMY
