Abstract
  • The physico-chemical reactions of ammonia in soils and clays have many practical and theoretical implications. On the one hand, large quantities of anhydrous ammonia are used annually in agriculture for fertilizer; the dry gas is applied directly to the soil by simply injecting it below the ground surface. On the other hand, ammonia is frequently employed in the laboratory as a device for analyzing surface properties of finely divided solids. In this respect ammonia is particularly useful in the study of the internal surfaces of 2:1 expanding -type clay minerals. This arises from its polar character and hence its ability to vigorously solvate the minerals, opening them up so as to exploit the interior surface regions.
