Abstract (in english)
   The influence of illite and birnessite amendments on the retention and bioavailability of Tl in contaminated soils was investigated. The efficiency of both phases was evaluated using Tl uptake by white mustard (Sinapis alba L.), sequential extraction and sorption experiments. The obtained data demonstrate that the application of birnessite can effectively transform Tl from the labile fraction to its reducible form, thus lowering Tl bioavailability in soil and subsequent accumulation by plants.
