Mutual effects of pH and ionic strength on the mobility of metoprolol in saturated quartz sand

Joshua Sawall & Ferry Schiperski
Emerging micropollutants such as lifestyle drugs, pesticides, and pharmaceuticals are increasingly detected in the aquatic environment. To counter possible threats posed by these pollutants, their transport behaviour needs to be thoroughly understood. In this study, 22 laboratory column transport experiments were conducted at selected pH and Na+ concentrations with natural quartz sand as sorbent to determine transport behaviour of the beta-blocker metoprolol (MTP, pKa=9.67) at various conditions. MTP breakthrough curves were measured at pH 3,...
