Abstract: The solubility of humic acid (HA) is a very important factor in the study of its interaction with metal ions and radionuclides. The solubility of HA as a function of hydrogen ion concentration was studied. It has been found that chemical behaviour of HA is similar to other polyelectrolytes. Solubility depends on pH, ionic strength, and many other factors. Unmonotonous character of the solubility curve in relationship with pH may be connected with conformation changes of HA saturated solutions. The results show that the addition of anionic surfactant to HA saturated solution can influence the solubility curve of HA.
