Effect of pH on the Cation-Exchange Capacity of Surface Soils1

  1. P. F. Pratt2

Abstract

Abstract

A method of measuring the pH-dependent cation-exchange capacity of soils is described and data for 15 surface soils are presented and discussed.

The pH-dependent cation-exchange capacity was found to be equivalent to the exchange acidity not displaced by a neutral KCl solution but displaced by buffered BaCl2-triethanolamine solution. The average contribution of the organic C and clay to the pH-dependent cation-exchange capacity of the soil was 370 and 15.6 me. per 100 g. of the respective materials.
