Conditional stability constants (log K), and binding site densities (Γmax) for dissolved metals and biota are important input parameters for the Biotic Ligand Model. However, determination of these binding parameters is likely to be influenced by solution kinetics because roots have a large metal-binding capacity and can accumulate metals rapidly. The aim of this study was to determine if the rate of free metal ion diffusion to the root surface, and amount of metal in the bulk solution, is… CONTINUE READING
