This numerical doctoral thesis has a nanoscale focus. Sorption reactions on nanostructured surfaces are investigated using Monte Carlo simulation methods. The results are used in pore scale reactive transport models within the scope of this thesis. This numerical work is accompanied by parallel experimental investigations for parameterization and validation. Approaches for scaling up the results to the plug/core scale of reactive transport models using flow field data round off these investigations on the sandy facies of the Opalinus Clay in the iCross joint project.
