The release of contaminants in aquatic ecosystems can be influenced by humic acids. In this study, toxicity tests using environmentally relevant concentrations of arsenic and cobalt were conducted both in the presence and absence of aquatic humic substances (AHS) and the fractions of different molecular sizes in the range of (<5, 5-10;10-30; 30-100 and(More)
Humic substances (HS) are ubiquitous organic compounds able to affect mobility and availability of arsenic (As) in aquatic systems. Although it is known that associations between HS and As occur mainly via iron (Fe)-cationic bridges, the behaviour and distribution of this metalloid in HS- and Fe-rich environments is still not fully understood. In this(More)
The distribution of metals and metalloids among particulate, dissolved, colloidal, free, and labile forms in natural waters is of great environmental concern since it determines their transportation behaviour and bioavailability. Organic matter can have an important role for this distribution process, since it is an important complexing agent and ubiquitous(More)
