  • Linear alkylbenzenesulfonates (LAS) are anionic surfactants that are used in large quantities in industrial and consumer products. They enter the environment primarily through wastewater and sludge. In this study, the sorption of LAS to the surfaces of sediment particles was investigated as a function of LAS homologue, H + concentration in solution, Ca 2+ concentration in solution, sediment properties, and concentration of solids. Evidence for both hydrophobic and specific or electrostatic… CONTINUE READING
