Abstract Low molecular weight (LMW) organic acids are believed to play a key role in many rhizosphere and pedogenic processes; However, their efficiency is likely to depend on their susceptibility to sorption and biodegradation. The sorption characteristics of three organic acids (citrate, oxalate and acetate) and phosphate were examined over the concentration range 0–1000 μM in three coniferous forest soil profiles. Sorption to the soil's solid phase could be adequately described by the… CONTINUE READING
