A combination of bulk mineralogy, ele- Surface complexation mental composition analysis, dissolution behavior, and water ionic composition data were used to characterize Geochemistry the samples’ surface heterogeneity. The adsorption of anionic surfactants is 2.4 mg/m at pH of ∼8 and de- creases approximately linearly with pH values above 9. To constrain and compare the relative adsorption aﬃnity and the likely modes of attachment on mineral constituents as pH changes, we performed surface complexation
