Summary Potassium pyrophosphate (0.1m) removes very little Fe from crystalline Fe oxides at pH 10, but peptizes finely divided hydrous amorphous oxides and organic matter in soils. Fe and C contents of extracts from each horizon of twenty-six British soil profiles show distinctive patterns, independent of the residual dithionite-soluble Fe. Thus extracts of humus Fe podzols have maximum Fe and C in the B horizon, peaty gley podzol has maximum Fe in the B horizon but maximum C in the surface. These groups are differentiated from non-podzols which have maximum pyrophosphate extractable Fe and C in the surface horizon, decreasing with depth. Intermediate patterns help to quantify differences in soils of classes having properties of more than one soil group.
