Kinetic and adsorptive characterization of biochar in metal ions removal
Abstract Kinetic and adsorption studies on the removal of metal ions such as Cu(II), Zn(II), Cd(II) and Pb(II) ions in the biochar (BC) samples have been carried out. The effects of severalExpand

Chemistry of Soil Organic Matter
【Summary】 Humic substances (HSs) are by far the most abundant of the organic components of nature, and are present in all soils and natural waters that contain organic matter. The more widelyExpand

Molecular structures and associations of humic substances in the terrestrial environment
Here we show, for the first time, evidence of the primary molecular structures in humic substances (HS), the most abundant naturally occurring organic molecules on Earth, and their associations asExpand

Unraveling the structural components of soil humin by use of solution-state nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
Humin is the most recalcitrant and least understood fraction of soil organic matter. By definition, humin is that fraction not extracted by traditional aqueous alkaline soil extractants. Here we showExpand
