Phytoremediation of heavy metal Copper (II) from aqueous environment by using aquatic macrophytes Hydrilla verticillata and Pistia stratiotes


Author(s): V Venkateswarlu, CH Venkatrayulu and TCH Jhansi Lakshmi Bai

Abstract: The objective of this study was to determine the ability of Hydrilla and Pistia in terms of tolerance and degradation of copper pollution in aquatic environment. The plants were released into 3 different tanks containing copper solutions of 2ppm, 5ppm and 7ppm respectively and observed for metal extraction for 28 days. After 28 days, heavy metal analysis was done with inductively coupled plasma quadruple mass spectrometry (ICP-Q-MS). The results showed that percentage of metal extractions by weeds were observed i.e., 69% in 2ppm concentration, 43.8% in 5ppm, and 33.35% in 7ppm concentration. Better growth of weeds was observed in 5ppm concentration only.
