Characterization of proton and copper binding properties of natural organic matter from an Australian drinking water source by differential absorbance spectroscopy
MetadataShow full item record
This study examined the effects of changes in pH and copper concentration on the absorbancespectra of natural organic matter (NOM) from a reservoir in Western Australia. Differentialabsorbance spectra generated for this NOM under changing pH and copper concentrationconditions revealed features that could be correlated to the activity of distinct types ofchromophores. A comparison of results with those generated for experiments with standardSuwannee River fulvic acid highlighted important differences in chemistry between the twosamples.

An investigation into the leaching behaviour of copper oxide minerals in aqueous alkaline glycine solutionsTanda, B.; Eksteen, Jacques; Oraby, E. (2017)Copper oxide minerals are normally extracted by acidic leaching followed by copper recovery with solvent extraction and electrowinning. However, copper oxide deposits often containing large amounts of acid consumable ...
