  • October Tech Tip: Metals Sorption and pH

    At the ambient pH of most aquifers many dissolved metals (Ag, Ba, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Li, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn) are present as positively charged ions (cations). Transport of these dissolved cations is often controlled by sorption to negatively charged surfaces including sediment iron oxides (e.g., goethite, ferrihydrite, and hematite). At low pH, iron oxides take on a positive charge and sorption of metal ...
