Molecular Level Characterization of Metal Sorption on Soil Clay Minerals in the Presence of Inorganic and Organic Ligands Grant uri icon



  • The research presented in this project will continue our investigation into metal reaction mechanisms with clay minerals, and will provide new data on how ligands interact with metals and impact the sorption mechanisms. This research is fundamental in nature, and will use some of the most advanced tools available to provide an improved understanding of the reaction mechanisms and solid phase properties that are involved in sorption of metals by clay minerals. Thus, this research will benefit national and international scientific and engineering efforts.
