Soil powder consists of different minerals and the most frequent components are kaolin, quartz and feldspate. Soil is the outer, loose layer that covers the surface of Earth. Ion exchange involves the movement of cations (positively charged elements like calcium, magnesium, and sodium) and anions (negatively charged elements like chloride, and compounds like nitrate) through the soils.
