This could have a major impact on the characterisation of germplasm for waterlogging tolerance, since different locations may have different microelement toxicities due to the predisposition of soils for specific microelements (2-fold differences in Fe concentrations were observed here for the two Indian soils evaluated).
MnS[O.sub.4], was used in attempt to clear out, whether KMn[O.sub.4] acts as an oxidizing agent, or as a microelement speeding up the biochemical reactions.
The microelement body in the deformation zone was usually employed to develop the modeling of rolling force, as shown in Fig.
Among the microelement, the presence of copper, iron, molybdenum, manganese, sodium and zinc is outstanding.
Although copper (Cu) is an essential microelement to many metabolic activities, it becomes extremely toxic in higher concentrations.
The beneficial effects of the analyzed drugs are mainly due to the presence of active ingredients like essential oils, flavanoids, alkaloids, tannins, and saponins but they are also influenced by inorganic components, as the macro and microelement presence in the extract [3].
Introduction of the zeolites into contaminated soil containing molybdenum and iron in its microelement structure provides a speed of nitrogen fixation processes maximally possible for this kind of soil due to activation of nitrogenase fermentation complex of nitrogen fixation microorganisms.
Many antioxidants play an important role in various biological processes; enzyme production, DNA synthesis, testicular development and sperm maturation are microelement and vitamin dependent.
Our study showed that a SnBiX solder fabricated by adding microelement based on SnBi20 reduced the cost and lowered the melting point to around 186[degrees]C, close to traditional SnPb37 eutectic.
