Batch uptake experiments over the pH range 4–8 and Revised 1 September 2015 [W] = 50–2000 lM show typical oxyanion behavior, and isotherm experiments reveal continued uptake Accepted 2 September 2015 with increasing tungstate concentration without any clear uptake maximum. Desorption experiments Available online 5 September 2015 showed that sorption is irreversible at pH 4 and partly reversible at pH 8. Tungsten L - and L -edge 1 3 XANES spectroscopy indicates that all sorbed tungstates are octahedrally coordinated, even though the Keywords: dominant solution species at pH 8 is a tetrahedral monotungstate.
