Exposure of geomaterials to acid leachates may cause chemical species desorption, mineral dissolution, and metal leaching. This study seeks to understand the changes in the physicochemical composition of liquid extracts resulting from the exposure of four different geomaterials (uniform fine sand, basalt residual soil, kaolin, and bentonite) to a blank solution ...

The main goal of this paper is to evaluate the chemical and mineralogical composition of a compacted residual clay soil with the addition of Portland cement and under different compaction conditions to observe and to understand the chemical and mineralogical changes that these structures undergo. Results of chemical and mineralogical composition of compacted spe...

Increased food production results in the development and application of agrochemicals to control weeds, which can affect agricultural production. Pesticides contaminate the environment and change soil and water quality. Therefore, to improve the understanding of the adsorption mechanism of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) in aluminoferric red oxis...

This paper evaluates porosity changes in compacted soil subjected to acidic leachate percolation through different dry unit weights. The porosity of compacted soil is presented in different nominal porosities or dry unit weights (41.9% and 15.5 kN/m3, 43.8% and 15.0 kN/m³, and 45.7% and 14.5 kN/m³) percolated with a sulfuric acid solut...
