Natural Organic Matter (NOM) transport and biodegradability are impacted by its interaction with minerals. Natural Organic Matter also interacts with contaminants in the environment and thus plays a crucial role in their toxicity and faith. In fact, the major chemical groups allowing NOM to interact with metallic contaminants or mineral surfaces are the same chemical groups with acid-base properties. Considering that the determination and the characterization these chemical groups are of paramount utility, Marawit Tesfa has developed a faster and a more accurate protocol.
