Soil colloids. Properties and ion binding
FERNANDO V. MOLINA
Lugar: Boca Ratón, Florida; Año: 2013 p. 545
The present book is devoted to the subject of soil colloidal components and their interaction with ionic species. The fundamental problem of ion binding to natural colloids (both inorganic such as clays and oxides, and organic, mainly humic substances) is a multidisciplinary research field which raises special challenges. These come mainly from the heterogeneous and (sometimes) ill-defined nature of natural colloids, specially humic substances. Soil scientists, on one side, and colloid chemists, on the other one, tend to have different views of the problem. This book is intended as a contribution to fill the gap, and also bring the latest advances in this active research field.
