Introduction A contaminant is defined as a substance that is not natural to the soil, or a naturally occurring substance which has undesirable effects if its concentration exceeds a certain threshold. A number of non-metals have the potential to be contaminants in soil and water. Because of their high ionic potential, non-metals of Groups IlIA to VIA of the Periodic Table in their normal oxidation states form oxyanions (Sposito, 1984). Examples of non-metal oxyanions commonly found in the soil solution are borate (B(OH\-), biocarbonate (HC0 3-), nitrate (N0 3-), silicate (H 3Si04-), sulphate (SO/-), phosphate (H 2P0 4-), arsenate (As0 43-) and selenate (SeO/-).
