Resumo: In this work we propose a dynamic metal speciation theory for colloidal systems in which the complexing ligands are localized on the surface of the particles; i.e., there is spatial heterogeneity of binding sites within the sample volume. The differences between the complex formation and dissociation rate constants of complexes in colloidal dispersions and those in homogeneous solutions originate from the differences in kinetic and mass transport conditions. In colloidal systems, when the effective rate of dissociation of the surface complexes becomes fully diffusion controlled, its value is defined via the geometrical parameters of the particle. We assess the extent to which the conventional approach of assuming a homogeneously smeared-out ligand distribution overestimates the lability of surface complexes in colloidal ligand dispersions. The validity of the theory is illustrated by application to binding of lead and cadmium by carboxyl modified latex particles: our approach correctly predicts the formation/dissociation rate constants, which differ by several orders of magnitude from their homogeneous solution counterparts.
