Previous studies have documented that phosphate compounds of lead (Pb) [e.g., pyromorphite Pb5(PO4)3-(X), where X=OH, F or Cl] are comparatively insoluble, and their formation in Pb-contaminated soil may be a means of reducing the bioavailability and chemical lability of Pb in soil. In this study, the effect of phosphate compound amendments on the bioavailability of Pb in a polluted alkaline soil was examined. A Pb-contaminated soil was treated with hydroxyapatite (HA), phosphate rock (PR… CONTINUE READING
