The behavior and fate of mercury (Hg) in soil is mainly controlled by adsorption and desorption processes with various adsorbents, particularly dissolved organic matter (DOM). This study was conducted to assess the effect of DOM from wheat straw (DOMw) and swine manure (DOMs) on Hg (II) adsorption of black, red, and fluvo-aquic soils in China. Results showed that the Hg (II) adsorption isotherms fitted well with Langmuir and Freundlich equations. The maximum Hg (II) potential adsorption… CONTINUE READING
