The low Cd biosorption at pH less than 4 has been suggested to the competition among metal ions from hydronium ions
for the available biosorption sites.
At lower pH (acidic pH), the adsorbent surface will be completely covered with hydronium ions
which compete strongly with metal ions for adsorption sites.
When the positively charged droplets come into contact with the sample being tested, the hydronium ions
transfer their extra proton to molecules in the sample, turning them into ions.
