Antimony is an element of growing interest for a variety of industrial applications, even though Sb compounds are classified as priority pollutants by the Environmental Protection Agency of the United States. Iron (Fe) hydroxides appear to be important sorbents for Sb in soils and sediments, but mineral surfaces can also catalyze oxidation processes and may thus mobilize Sb. The aim of this study was to investigate whether goethite immobilizes Sb by sorption or whether Sb(III) adsorbed on… CONTINUE READING
