X-ray absorption and micro X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy investigation of copper and zinc speciation in biosolids

Donner, Erica; Howard, Daryl; de Jonge, Martin; Paterson, David; Cheah, Michael; Naidu, Ravi; Lombi, Enzo


Despite its pivotal role in determining the risks and time frames associated with contaminant release, metal speciation remains a poorly understood aspect of biosolids chemistry. The work reported here used synchrotron-based spectroscopy techniques to investigate the speciation of copper and zinc in a range of Australian biosolids. High resolution element mapping of biosolids samples using micro X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy revealed considerable heterogeneity in key element associations, and...[Show more]
