Abstract
One form of chemical contamination involves the contribution of heavy metals to the ecosystem mainly from industrial spills and mining operations.

The importance of this type of toxic lies in the tendency to be accumulated and concentrated by the different species, being more dangerous as it ascends the evolutionary chain towards man. Chemical precipitation is the most widely used technique for metal recov...
