Abstract (in english)
   Ferric oxide admixtures in the concentration range 0.1-10 per cent in soils, sediments, and clay mineral samples can be conveniently characterized by Vis diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) in the region of d-d electron transitions close to 500 nm, voltammetry of microparticles, and voltammetry with carbon paste electroactive electrode (CPEE). DRS also detects Fe(III) in the clay mineral matrix equally sensitively. Voltammetry of microparticles is suitable for direct detection of free crystalline and amorphous ferric oxides. The determination limit of total free ferric oxides with CPEE is about 0.01per cent. The techniques were tested with six clay mineral samples. XRD was able to detect free FeOOH in only one of them (1.6 per cent), DRS and CPEE also detected 0.19 per cent FeOOH in Be-3 (bentonite of Rokle deposit, Bohemia) and 0.04 per cent in reference montmorillonite SWy-2
