Evaluation of Small Unilamellar Vesicles as a Removal Method of Benzo[a]pyrene from Humic Substances in Soils

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are highly hydrophobic and lipophilic and are readily retained by soil surfaces and organic matter. Hence, several techniques have been developed in an effort to economically and effectively remove them from soil solids. Their strong affinity to soil organic matter limits their biodegradation processes by microorganisms, making them persistent in the soil environment. Recently, the use of “small unilamellar vesicles” (SUVs), nano-scale lipid aggregates, has been proposed as a means to...
