Generally, the adsorption by activated carbon (AC) is a feasible strategy for desulfuration [4-6].
Cysteine desulfurase (CDS; EC 2.8.1.7) is an important enzyme for the assimilatory sulfur metabolism, where it performs the following desulfuration reaction [3, 6, 7] (Scheme 1):
Furthermore, the fluorescence of BGO in presence of [Hg.sup.2+] would be reversed by addition of KI, which means that no desulfuration occurred (Figure S3).
Manganese is widely used in steel production for desulfuration and deoxidization.
Aside from metabolizing homocysteine to cysteine through the transsulfuration pathway, CBS and CSE are also responsible for hydrogen sulfide production through desulfuration reactions.

The toxic effects of malathion are related to its CYP-mediated oxidative desulfuration to bioactive malaoxon leading to accretion of acetylcholine in neuroeffector junctions.
Chlorpyrifos is firstly activated to its active metabolite Chlorpyrifos--oxon by oxidative desulfuration which in turn is responsible for mammalian toxicity through inhibition of cholinesterase (Timchalk et al., 2002; Betancourt and Carr, 2004; Tongbai and Damrongphol, 2011)(10,11,12).
Morrison and Porter (11) confirmed that the observed reduction in vulcani-zate properties is caused by two reactions proceeding in parallel, i.e., desulfuration and decomposition, see Table 1.
