Last weeks, I was doing some bibliography using Web of Science and found an interesting reference according to its title!
The use of natural inorganic sorbents for adsorption of lanthanide ionsby Gladysz-Plaska and Majdan (2006) in PRZEMYSL CHEMICZNY
Unfortunately, it was not available on any form online, I thus order it through my library service. Earlier this week, I got a crappy printed copy. Obviously the text is in Polish (and I did not understand anything) but the figures and captions, as well as the abstract, are in English too.
Abstractby Gladysz-Plaska and Majdan (2006) in PRZEMYSL CHEMICZNY
A review with 43 refs. covering adsorption of Ln(III) ions on Fe, Al, Mn or Si oxyhydroxides or on Al, Mg and Fe aluminosilicates, and the distribution coeffs. of Ln(III) ions between the aq. and the solid phase.
What’s hurt me, is Figure 4! Sorry for the quality, i will try to upgrade it!
Reference 17 in Gladysz-Plaska and Majdan (2006) is mine (Davranche et al., 2004), you’re going to tell me it’s not plagiarism. I don’t think so! Let’s have a closer look!
Data from Figure 4 in Gladysz-Plaska and Majdan (2006) are identical to data from Figures 3 and 4 in Davranche et al. (2004). Let’s see by yourself.
Moreover, in those figures HFO was replaced by MnO2. We also have published such results in our paper : Davranche et al. (2005)! It is not exactly the same!
It’s may be fine to reproduce some data, but you have to do it well!
