Preferential sorption of tannins at aluminum oxide affects the electron exchange capacities of dissolved and sorbed humic acid fractions.
Environ. Sci. Technol. 54, 1837-1847 (2020)
Natural organic matter and humic substances (HS) in soils and sediments participate in numerous biogeochemical processes. Sorption to redox-inert aluminum oxide (Al2O3) was recently found to affect the redox properties of HS both in sorbed and dissolved state. With this study, we aim to decipher the molecular basis for these observations by applying Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (FT-ICRMS) and mediated electrochemical analysis to Elliott soil, Pahokee peat, and Suwannee river humic acid (HA) samples before and after sorption to polar Al2O3 and a nonpolar sorbent (DAX-8 resin). The FT-ICRMS data provided evidence of preferential sorption of specific HA fractions, primarily tannin-like compounds, to Al2O3. These oxygen-rich compounds bear a high density of redox-active functional groups, and their adsorption leads to a depletion of electron exchange capacity in dissolved HAs and enrichment of HAs adsorbed at Al2O3. Sorption of HAs to DAX-8 was less selective and caused only slight changes in electron exchange capacities of dissolved and sorbed HA fractions. By combining FT-ICRMS and electrochemical approaches, our findings suggest that a selective sorption of oxygen-rich compounds in HA fractions to mineral oxides is a decisive factor for the different redox properties of dissolved and sorbed HA fractions.
