Molecular and quantitative analysis of metal ion binding to humic acids from sewage sludge and sludge-amended soils by fluorescence spectroscopy.
Humic acids (HAs) isolated from sewage sludge (SS) and control and SS-amended soils were characterized by fluorescence spectroscopy. The main feature of fluorescence spectra was a broad band with theExpand
