Sorption processes at the mineral/water interface typically control the mobility and bioaccessibility of many inorganic contaminants such as oxyanions. Selenium is an important micronutrient for human and animal health, but at elevated concentrations selenium toxicity is a concern. The objective of this study was to determine the bonding mechanisms of… (More)
