Complexation of Am with size-fractionated soil humic acids

Humic substances play important role in geochemical behavior of trace elements such as actinides in aquatic environments. The association properties of Am with humic substances were studied on the basis of structural feature of humic substances. Humic acids prepared from three types of soils, and separated two humic acids with different structural features: fluorescence-poor and higher molecular size fraction, HA and fluorescence-rich and lower molecular size fraction, FL. The association experiments were carried out in a medium of 0.01M NaClO$$_{4}$$ solution at a humus concentration of 10 mg/l and pH 6-8. The dominant size fractions of Am in the presence of the HA were 450nm - 100k Daltons and 100k - 30k Daltons. On the other hand, Am was presented in the size of 30k - 10k Daltons in the FL. These results indicate that characteristics of size-fractionated humic acids are related association properties with Am.
