Abstract

Heavy metal compositions of Cd, Co, Cr Ni, Pb and Zn in Arundina graminifolia collected from mining area at Lombong Pelepah Kanan, Kota Tinggi, Johor were determined. The heavy metal content was also analysed in their soil substrates. The plants were separated into different portions i.e. root, stem and leaf, and extracted for their heavy metal content by digestion method whereas the soil heavy metal content was extracted by sequential extraction. Heavy metal content in soil and plant extract was determined using the Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer. Heavy metal contents of Cd, Cr, Ni and Pb in plants were comparable with their content in the control plant, whereas the Co and Zn content were three to five folds higher. As for heavy metal content in different plant parts, it was found that Cd concentration was high in root (2.03 mg/kg)followed by leaf(1.67mg/kg) andstem (1.49 mg/ kg). Co concentration was high in leaf(9.26 mg/kg) followed by root (9.18 mg/kg) and stem (6.94 mg/kg). For Cr, the concentration in decreasing sequence was root (0.46 mg/kg) > leaf (0.19 mg/kg) > stem (0.08 mg/kg). Ni concentration was higher in leaf (2.78 mg/kg) followed by root (2.71 mg/kg) and stem (1.66 mg/kg). Concentration in decreasing order was root (10.34 mg/kg) > leaf (4.18 mg/kg) > stem (3.75 mg/kg). Zn concentration was higher in leaf (44.03 mg/kg) followed by root (32.30 mg/kg) and stem (13.21 mg/kg). Total heavy metal content in soil was 2.07-5.59 mg/kg, 8.72-39.93 mg/kg, 1.81-2.14 mg/kg, 2.66-6.87 mg/kg, 23.02-51.56 mg/kg and 0.64-2.61 mg/kg for Ni, Zn, Cd, Pb, Co and Cr respectively. The available fraction of heavy metals in soil was 21.9% for Ni, 15.3% for Zn, 49.9% for Cd, 19.3% for Pb, 45.7% for Co and nil percent for Cr Biological adsorption coefficient for the heavy metals studied was very low except for Zn where BAc value was slightly higher than 1. This plant was not suitable to be used as a phyto-remediation agent for the heavy metals studied.
