Abstract: Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) coupled with electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDXS) was used to investigate the coagulation of natural organic matter with a ferric salt. Jar-test experiments were first conducted with a reconstituted water containing either synthetic or natural extracts of humic substances, and then with a raw water from Moselle River (France). The characterization of the freeze-dried coagulated sediment by EELS in the 250-450 eV range, s…
