Irreversible Alteration of Soil–Subsurface Matrix Induced by Contaminant Binding

  • Bruno Yaron
  • Ishai Dror
  • Brian Berkowitz


In the previous chapter, we discussed irreversible adsorption of polar contaminants, and induced changes in clay mineral phases through ionic exchange pathways. However, as a function of the properties of the adsorbent and the environmental aqueous solution, some contaminants may be adsorbed either by cation exchange or by chemical or physical binding. Pollutants in the bound state behave differently from freely dissolved molecules, and as a consequence, they act differently on the adsorbing matrix. We therefore separate the discussion as contaminant adsorption via ion exchange (Chap. 5) and as a result of binding processes.
