Abstract

For Fe(III) to play a significant role in the catalytic oxidation of SO2 in the atmosphere it is required to dissolve. This study shows that while Fe2O3 dissolves only very slowly the iron present in pulverized fuel ash is quite soluble. At pH 3 over 10 per cent of the iron present can dissolve in less than 20 min, supporting the suggestion that Fe(III) may play an important role in SO2 oxidation in plumes from coal-burning energy sources. © 1975.
