Simultaneous Determination of Surface Area and Cation-Exchange Capacity1

Abstract

Abstract

In previous work it was found that Cl repulsion by arid-zone soi's from a solution having a high and uniform concentration of Cl is closely related to surface area as measured by ethylene glycol retention. Based on this information, a measurement of Cl repulsion has been incorporated into the NaOAc method for determining cation-exchange capacity. As a result, values for surface area, as well as cation-exchange capacity, can be obtained with but little additional analytical work, except for soils high in kaolinite and sesquioxides.
