This study investigated the effects of suspended TiO2 nanoparticles (nTiO2) on the transport of Pb2 + in saturated repacked soil columns under different ionic strengths (IS) and in the presence of fulvic acid (FA). Also, the contribution of soil colloids to the mobility of Pb2 + was discussed. In the absence of nTiO2, little amount of Pb2 + was detected in the effluent even in the presence of FA. However, the presence of nTiO2 significantly enhanced the mobility of Pb2 + in soil columns under all tested conditions and nTiO2-associated Pb2 + was the major migration species of Pb2 +. Increasing the solution IS decreased the nTiO2-associated Pb2 + migration due to the significant decrease in the mobility of nTiO2 in soil. FA remarkably increased the nTiO2-associated Pb2 + mobility in soil column, which was mainly to increase the mobility of nTiO2 in soil and decrease desorption rate of Pb2 + from nTiO2 during transport. Moreover, nTiO2 significantly enhanced the release of Fe-Al soil colloids, which in turn was also responsible for the enhancement of Pb2 + mobility in soil. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.
