Sukkestad, Kathryn; Curran, Mary Carla – Science Teacher, 2012
Mollusks, such as mussels and snails, are a great group to noodle because they are prevalent in banks and bottoms of river basins and in sandy beach habitats. Furthermore, their shells are easy to come by and safe to handle. There are six classes within the phylum Mollusca. In the activities described in this article, the authors focus on the…

Caicedo, Obradith; Devia-Ramirez, Jency; Malagón, Andrés – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Adsorption of methylene blue and malachite green was carried out using "Luffa cylindrica" sponges as adsorbing material. We provide a very illustrative exercise about the use of common natural materials requiring little preparation to solve environmental tasks in a routine laboratory situation such as using dyes. In addition, the…
