Antagonistic Cd and Zn isotope behavior in the extracted soil fractions from industrial areas

Abstract

The remobilization of metals accumulated in contaminated soils poses a threat to humans and ecosystems in general. Tracing metal fractionation provides valuable information for understanding the remobilization processes in smelting areas. Based on the difference between the isotopic system of Cd and Zn, this work aimed to couple isotope data and their leachability to identify possible remobilization processes in several soil types and land uses. For soil samples, the delta Zn-66/64 values ranged from 0.12 +/- 0.05 parts per thousand to 0.28 +/- 0.05 parts per thousand in Avil & eacute;s (Spain) and from - 0.09 +/- 0.05 parts per thousand to - 0.21 +/- 0.05 parts per thousand in Pr & iacute;bram (Czech Republic), and the delta Cd-114/110 ranged from - 0.13 +/- 0.05 parts per thousand to 0.01 +/- 0.04 parts per thousand in Avil & eacute;s and from - 0.86 +/- 0.27 parts per thousand to - 0.24 +/- 0.05 parts per thousand in Pr & iacute;bram. The metal fractions extracted using chemical extractions were always enriched in heavier Cd isotopes whilst Zn isotope systematics exhibited light or heavy enrichment according to the soil type and land uses. Coupling Zn and Cd systematics provided a tool for deciphering the mechanisms behind the remobilization processes: leaching of the anthropogenic materials and/or metal redistribution within the soil components prior to remobilization.
