The decrease in lead uptake by acid desorbent might be due to the increase of the concentrations of competing hydronium ions.
Reducing the pH subsequently reduces the anion species available by increasing the competition amongst hydronium ions and metal ions (24).
An essential part of this description is the theory of Esin and Markov (16) regarding specific occupation of adsorption sites in the inner Helmholtz plane (IHP) and outer Helmholtz plane (OHP) by hydronium ions, hydroxide ions, electrolyte anions, and cations (two ion types for each Helmholtz plane have to be defined as preferentially adsorbed).
