Peptisation of aggregates and particles (metal oxides with adsorbed SOM) at high pH is possibly more important than ligand exchange of Fe and Al ions (Borggaard 1988), but the relation of these two fractions depends on the soil type and soil composition (Jarvis 1986; Parfitt and Childs 1988).
Analytical grade hydrochloric acid (HQ) 37% (Fisher, UK) was used as a catalyst for the peptisation, and deionised water was used as a dispersing medium.
