Section 2 : Interactions of Humic Substances

January 1997
Humic Substances, Peats & Sludges;1997, p187
The article introduces several studies concerning interactions of humic substances. A study conducted by Law and colleagues describes an automated procedure for sorption by humic substances using a combination of continuous-flow and flow-injection analysis processes. Meanwhile, Hayes and colleagues has examined the influences of humic acids, fulvic acids and XAD-4 acids on the solubilities of five biocides with low solubilites in water. Norman and colleagues highlights some of the possible problems humic substances can pose in industrial processes.
