Humic substances are chemically very complex materials whose structure and reactions are not fully understood. They are believed to be macromolecules, spanning a wide range of molecular weights, which are formed from quinones and phenolic compounds. They contain a wide variety of functional groups, which may react with metals. Many different physical and chemical procedures have been used to study these interactions, and numerous different reaction mechanisms and products have been postulated… CONTINUE READING
