  • The relatively low hydrolyzing capacity of Mn(II) leads to the formation of oxides rather than hydroxides of this element in soils. The formation of vernadite, birnessite, todorokite, and lithiophorite was recently proved in soils. Vernadite with an Fe admixture and Mn-containing iron minerals, i.e., ferroxyhyte, fer- rihydrite, and magnetite, were also found. Fe-vernadite and Mn-ferroxyhyte are the most abundant in soils. Manganese oxidogenesis is the most intensely pronounced in the soils of… CONTINUE READING
