Then, one can either plot the data as a calibration curve of adsorbed metal as a function of the free metal, or the inorganic metal, concentration or the data can be fitted to an equation of the form of (12) or (13). Normally a known complexing ligand (5 x 10- 5 M glycine) is added to the suspension before calibration, in order to increase the dissolved metal concentration to measurable, and less easily contaminable, 23 levels, unless a radio-tracer is used. The adsorbed metal concentration is determined by mass balance from the total and dissolved metal concentrations.
