Effect of pH and Inorganic Reagents on the Immobilization of Cadmium in Some Malaysian Cocoa-growing Soils
Low, K. S. and Lee, C. K. (1994) Effect of pH and Inorganic Reagents on the Immobilization of Cadmium in Some Malaysian Cocoa-growing Soils. Pertanika Journal of Science & Technology, 2 (2). pp. 181-187. ISSN 0128-7680
The effects of pH and various inorganic reagents on the immobility of cadmium in three Malaysian cocoa-growing soils (Rengam, Bernam and Malacca) were investigated. Results show that Ca(OH)2 was most efficient in immobilizing cadmium. Carbonates and phosphates were also effective, though to a lesser extent.
