The association properties of Am with aquatic humic substances in a 0.01M NaClO4 solution at pH 6-8 were studied on the basis of molecular size distribution. Ten humic substances isolated from river water with different water quality (pH 3.9-8.0 and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) concentration of 2-40 mg/l) were used for comparing their effects on the association of Am. The molecular size distribution of Am in the presence of humic substances from an uncolored river water (DOC 2 mg/l) was different from that at the experimental systems using humic substances from brownish and high DOC (14-40 mg/l) river waters.

The region of Toledo River, Paraná, Brazil is characterized by intense anthropogenic activities. Hence, metal concentrations
and physical–chemical parameters of Toledo River water were determined in order to complete an environmental evaluation catalog.
Samples were collected monthly during one year period at seven different sites from the source down the river mouth, physical–chemical
variables were analyzed, and major metallic ions were measured. Metal analysis was performed by using the synchrotron radiation
total reflection X-ray fluorescence technique. A statistical analysis was applied to evaluate the reliability of experimental
data. The analysis of obtained results have shown that a strong correlation between physical–chemical parameters existed among
sites 1 and 7, suggesting that organic pollutants were mainly responsible for decreasing the Toledo River water quality.

In this work, sorption of Ni(II) from aqueous solution to goethite as a function of various water quality parameters and temperature
was investigated. The results indicated that the pseudo-second-order rate equation fitted the kinetic sorption well. The sorption
of Ni(II) to goethite was strongly dependent on pH and ionic strength. A positive effect of HA/FA on Ni(II) sorption was found
at pH < 8.0, whereas a negative effect was observed at pH > 8.0. The Langmuir, Freundlich, and D-R models were applied to
simulate the sorption isotherms at three different temperatures of 293.15 K, 313.15 K and 333.15 K. The thermodynamic parameters
(ΔH0, ΔS0 and ΔG0) were calculated from the temperature dependent sorption, and the results indicated that the sorption was endothermic and
spontaneous. At low pH, the sorption of Ni(II) was dominated by outer-sphere surface complexation or ion exchange with Na+/H+ on goethite surfaces, whereas inner-sphere surface complexation was the main sorption mechanism at high pH.
