- ... Knowledge on the sorption behavior of cationic organic substances in aquatic systems is vital for their risk assessment due to the increasing detection of such chemicals in the hydrosphere. Their sorption behavior is strongly influenced by sorption processes onto mineral surfaces (e.g., oxides, clays). To contribute to the development of prediction tools, the impact of sorbent characteristics on t ...

- ... The pH-dependent molecule speciation (charge state) in solution strongly influences the transport of ionizable organic compounds in the aquatic environment. Therefore, the sorption behavior is complex and reliable predictions only based on physico-chemical sorbate, sorbent and solution properties are challenging. A short overview of underlying sorption processes causing retardation during the solu ...
