The Influence of Sorption on the Degradation of Pesticides and other Chemicals in Soil


If chemicals are bound to the soil particles, they will normally degrade slowly because they have become less available to the soil micro-organisms. However, the relationship is not so simple as it appears. In the present project, a comprehensive review of scientific literature was performed in which the influence of sorption on the degradation of chemicals in soil was studied. The conclusion of the project include a number of suggestions for future research into this field.
