Chromium (Cr) is a metal well-known to cause environmental pollution due to its association with a number of industrial processes involving leather, steel, electroplating, chemicals, dyes and paints. It is toxic to plants and microorganisms, and its study is attracting a lot of attention due to its increasing occurrence in groundwater under current changing climate scenaria. Of the several valence states of Cr, the trivalent [Cr(III)] and the hexavalent [Cr(VI)] species are the stable forms.
