Metal sorption to ferrihydrite Phosphate effects, X-ray absorption spectroscopy and surface complexation modelling


Phosphorus affects the sorption of many metals and arsenate to iron (hydr)oxides. This may influence the mobility and bioavailability of metals and arsenate in soil and water. Phosphorus therefore plays an important role in, e.g., determining the ecotoxicological risk of contaminants in soils. The overall aim of this thesis was to improve the understanding… (More)
