Abstract

Abiotic catalysis plays a vital role in many physicochemical processes in soil and related environments. Clay minerals, metal (oxy)hydroxides and oxides, and dissolved metals often demonstrate their ability to catalyze the transformations of natural organic and anthropogenic organic compounds, metals, metalloids, and other inorganics.
