Abstract Knowledge on organic matter (OM) concentration and composition is of major importance for predicting Zn speciation and bioavailability in soils, especially for low-Zn soils. However, comprehensive knowledge on the effect of soil-like organic amendments such as compost on metal speciation is limited. For the first time, multisurface modeling is applied on compost to study the effect of solid and dissolved OM composition on the speciation of reactive Zn as influenced by conditions applied in frequently used extractions to estimate Zn bioavailability. First, compost OM composition was determined by fractionation in operationally defined humic, fulvic, and hydrophilic acid pools under various extraction conditions, and subsequently, Zn speciation was modeled using the generic non-ideal competitive adsorption-Donnan (NICA-Donnan) model in addition to adsorption to hydrous ferric oxide (HFO) and clay. The results show a strong effect of extraction conditions on OM concentration and composition and related dissolved Zn speciation. Model predictions show that Zn in solution is mainly bound to dissolved humic acids. Analysis of deviations between measured and modeled Zn concentrations reveal specific limitations of the current generic model parameters, particularly with regard to Zn binding to OM at low concentrations and Ca-Zn competition, that is, typical conditions that occur in low-Zn soils.
