Complexion between mercury and humic substances from different landfill stabilization processes and its implication for the environment.


Three-dimensional excitation emission matrix (EEM) fluorescence spectroscopy was employed to investigate the structural properties and Hg(II)-binding behavior of humic substances (HS) extracted from different landfill stabilization processes. The EEM fluorescence properties of humic acid (HA) are characterized by intense fluorescence at Ex/Em=440/500 nm and… (More)
