DC (Direct current) is used in electrokinetic (EK) technology to extract hazardous materials from soils. Besides, AC (alternating current) electric field is also used to induce particle and fluid motion in electrokinetics. The influence of AC and DC on electrokinetic phenomena was studied for the removal of nitrate complex in soil environment. The experiments were performed by employing three systems – DC, AC, and AC overlapped DC. The removal of cations was higher at the anodic spot while applying DC. Involvement of AC on cation removal was very poor and nitrate removal was about 50%. AC and DC can be used for the removal of nitrate complex in agricultural soils.
