This review provides insights on (1) the chemistry of arsenic (As) in the soil environment and factors (e.g., pH, presence, nature, and concentration of competing inorganic and organic ligands), which regulate the sorption/ desorption of arsenate and arsenite (the most abundant As species in soils and waters) on/fromsoil components; (2) the chemical fractionation and speciation ofAs to identify species that aremoremobile and phytoavailable; and finally (3) the uptake of As by selected edible plants and production techniques able to reduce its translocation in plant tissues.

Abstract

This review provides insights on (1) the chemistry of arsenic (As) in the soil environment and factors (e.g., pH, presence, nature, and concentration of competing inorganic and organic ligands), which regulate the sorption/ desorption of arsenate and arsenite (the most abundant As species in soils and waters) on/fromsoil components; (2) the chemical fractionation and speciation ofAs to identify species that aremoremobile and phytoavailable; and finally (3) the uptake of As by selected edible plants and production techniques able to reduce its translocation in plant tissues.
