Role of Abiotic Catalysis in the Transformation of Organics, Metals, Metalloids, and Other Inorganics

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 oen demonstrate their ability to catalyze the transformations of natural organic and anthropogenic organic compounds, metals, metalloids, and other inorganics.
