Humic substances are highly-abundant organic compounds formed in soils and sediments by the decay of dead plants, microbes and animals. This book focuses on the important binding properties of these compounds which regulate the chemical reactivity and bioavailability of hydrogen and metal ions in the natural environment. Topics covered include the physico-chemical properties of humic matter and interactions of protons and metal cations with weak acids and macromolecules. Experimental laboratory methods are also discussed, together with mathematical modelling. Finally the author looks at how the results of this research can be used to interpret environmental phenomena in soils, waters and sediments. This comprehensive account of cation binding by humic matter is a valuable resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, environmental scientists, ecologists and geochemists.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'I wholeheartedly recommend the book to all workers in the field.' John Hamilton-Taylor, Chemistry and Industry
' ... this is a very useful and important monograph'. Angewandte Chemie
"This book is a valuable resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, environmental scientists, ecologists, and geochemists." Environmental Geology
"...this is a very valuable book that develops the HS-cation interaction in a comprehensive way. The well-developed structure of the book explores the most general information as well as very detailed aspects of HS-cation interactions. Readers looking for an introduction into the topic as well as readers looking for very specific information on a certain cation will find the book useful...This book is a helpful reference tool for graduate students in soil and environmental sciences, and scientists, engineers, and practitioners working in environmental studies." Vadose Zone Journal
