Chemical Changes in Leaves of Corn and Bean Plants Exposed to Simulated Acid Rain
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, the effects of simulated acid rain on vitamin E, vitamin D-2 and fatty acids levels of corn and bean leaves were investigated. It was determined that the level of palmitoleic acid (C16:1) increased in comparison with the control group (p<0.01, p<0.05), while the vitamin E, D-2 and linoleic acid (C18:2) levels considerably decreased in comparison with the control group (p<0.001). From the these results, we can suggest that simulated acid rain can have negative effects on levels of fatty acids, vitamin E and vitamin D-2 of these plant leaves.
