Vliv platinových kovů na systém půda-rostlina An affecting of soil-plant system by platinum group elements
Road traffic belongs to the anthropogenic activities affecting the landscape and many other factors. The most serious problem
of road traffic is emissions of toxic substances such as oxides of carbon, nitrogen, sulphur, and, in addition, aromatic hydrocarbons,
aldehydes and heavy metals, nowadays mainly platinum group elements (PGE), which are the main component of the catalyst.
In this way, PGE contaminate environment such as air, soil, water, sediment and biota. In this mini-review, ways of emissions
and forms of the emitted PGE are briefly summarized. Then, we focus on the transport in an environment, particularly
on soil-plant system.
Key words: platinum group elements, plant, soil, transport, environment.
