ABSTRACT
The authors characterized selected surface properties of humic acid preparations extracted from three types of Polish soils (degraded chernozem developed from loess, grey-brown podzolic soil developed from loam, grey-brown podzolic soil developed from loess). Based on the isotherms of water vapour adsorption, the specific surface area and the molar energy of adsorption were calculated; the effect of agrotechnical measures in multi-year cultivation on the surface properties of the humic acids under study was determined, and the effect of contamination of humic acids on the form of the isotherms of water vapour adsorption was analyzed.
