Kinetic versus equilibrium studies for the speciation of metal complexes with ligands from soil and water
The systems under study are recognized as dynamic structuresfar from equilbrium and a dynamic analysis is recommended. A comparison is made of a kinetic speciation approach with theapproach based on a local equilibrium approximation, which iscommonly used. The ligand exchange kinetic speciation schemedeveloped in our laboratories is reviewed and its scope andlimits identified. Tools such as laser thermal lensing, fluorescence probes, and combined high-performance liquidchromatography-ultrafiltration, which can be used in kineticspeciation, are evaluated. © The Royal Society of Chemistry, 1995.
