    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract When percolating a soil with neutral or weakly alkaline normal solutions (pH about 8.3) of different acetates, the order of cation adsorption, Mg>Ca>Ba>Na, follows that of solubility of the hydroxides. However cation adsorption for NH 4 , K, Ba and Na when percolating thereafter with the chloride solutions are alike.
The above constant cation value (in m-equiv./100 g) does not change with repeated exchanges neither does it change when acid or alkaline solutions are used such as 0.05 N HCl, 0.5 N FeCl 3 , 0.5 N AICI 3 , about 0.2 N Ba(OH) 2 . Tropical soils may contain much material inactive or hardly active in cation exchange (quartz, iron-, aluminium hydroxides, silicic acid and kaolinite) which disturb the relation between total surface (particles < 2μ) and cation value.

After treating soil with HCl 1.035 for 0.5 h at 55°C, cation value decreases slightly but still remains proportional to the surface of the soil particles. The amount of silica in excess of (or less than) the amount of Fe 2 O 3 + Al 2 O 3 (in m- equiv.) dissolved by HQ 1.035 for 1 h at 55°C and the SiO 2 /Fe 2 O 3 + Al 2 O 3 ) quotient are correlated with the amount of PO4 3-which is fixed from Ca (H 2 P0 4 ) 2 solution. The amount fixed depends also on temperature, duration of the reaction and concentration of the components (soil and Ca (H 2 PO 4 ) 2 solution). Cl -and SO 42-are bound to the soil as iron and aluminium hydroxide compounds which, however, are easily hydrolyzed.
