Application of the Sorption Theory to Eliminate Heavy Metals from Waste Waters and Contaminated Soils
The theories so far developed for the processes of sorption of heavy and transition metals (see Chapters 5, 6 and 9) have focused mainly on soil minerals and on clay-aluminum complexes as sorbents. Such theories provide a better understanding of the processes which take place in soils (Greenland and Hayes, 1978).
