Humic substances (HSs) can be easily adsorbed on natural solid surface and thereby affect the physicochemical behavior of metal ions in the natural environment. The influence of HSs is mainly attributed to the macromolecular structures and shapes of solution soluble and surface adsorbed HSs. Herein, to our knowledge, we firstly use both AFM and SEM to image and to compare the macromolecular structures...
