In English, many things are named after a particular country – but have you ever wondered what those things are called in those countries?
- In the processes generally known as bioleaching, stress-hardy bacteria, which can get all their nutrient requirements from the air and the minerals to be leached, are typically employed to oxidise ores to a more soluble state.
- #6 Polystyrene can leach styrene, a possible human carcinogen that may also interfere with hormones.
- Polyurethane is a fully reacted polymer in which every molecule bonds with another so it is chemically inert, which keeps it from oxidizing or leaching chemicals, theoretically extending tire life.
- The other attraction of these materials, which were developed in the 1970s, is that they continuously leach fluoride and so can help reduce the incidence of recurrent caries.
- Precious metals, such as platinum and gold, which may be present on the PCB, can also be leached and recovered electrochemically and reused.
- The pad is used to store a mound of ore through which chemicals percolate to leach out the gold ore, which is then collected and processed into bullion.
- He concluded that the pseudomorphs were derived when rainwater penetrating the near-surface layers leached out the sodium carbonate from the original shortite, leaving behind calcium carbonate.
- The small chloride ion can also sometimes work its way past protective coatings and leach out soluble iron chloride salts, exposing new surfaces for attack.
- This, combined with nutrients being leached out of the soils by high rainfall, may cause weakness in some plants and nutrient deficiency, particularly in sandy soils.
- Humus being highly colloidal, has the ability to adsorb and retain for future plant use many of the ions such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphates and ammonia which might be leached from the soil and lost in drainage.
- It will stop rain leaching nutrients from the soil over the winter, and as it rots down it will improve the soil's texture and fertility quite naturally.
- If rainfall or irrigation is excessive, nitrate will be leached below the plant?
- Soluble minerals are leached from soils on upper slopes, move down the slope, and are often deposited at the foot of the slope.
- More recently they have speculated that acid rain robs trees of this vital nutrient by leaching it from the soil and by mobilizing aluminum, which interferes with calcium uptake by roots.
- In Australia, Mangareva, parts of the U.S. Southwest, and many other locations, most of the nutrients had already been leached out of the soil by rainfall.
- Brackish and ocean waters may contain large quantities of sodium chloride as well as many other soluble compounds leached from the crust of the earth.
- The sort of feed may have to change, because the wetter winters will probably result in nutrients being leached out of the soil at a faster rate.
- The key, once you've cleared a patch of ground, is to get something sown or planted to fill the vacuum: otherwise the winter wet will leach nutrients from the soil, and the weeds will undo your good work in a matter of weeks.
- When they looked at the data from their 1995-2001 study and saw how much nitrate was being leached from the soil, they realized just how important it is to manage drainage systems carefully.
- One drawback of organic-based products is the tendency of chemicals to leach from the matrix material, leaving parts of the surface unprotected.
English has borrowed many of the following foreign expressions of parting, so you’ve probably encountered some of these ways to say goodbye in other languages.
