MIN3P Verification Example: pH-dependent cation surface complexation

go to MIN3P home page


This example demonstrates the pH-dependence of the binding of a metal (Me+) to a hydrous oxide using a non-electrostatic surface complexation model. The reaction parameters are based on Example 9.3a (page 545) in Stumm and Morgan (1996). Figure 1 compares the simulation results to the original calculations.
