Cu secondary adsorption by three variable charge soils collected from Hubei Province and Hunan Province was investigated. The amount of Cu secondary adsorption increased with that of SO42- elementary adsorption and conformed with the Langmuir, Freundlich and Temkin isotherms. Desorption of secondary-adsorbed Cu indicated that the hysteresis ratio decreased as Cu secondary adsorption increased, which meant that secondry-adsorbed Cu existed not only in the exchangeable form but also in the bridge form and specifically adsorbed form. The amount of Cu secondary adsorption increased with the temperature.
