Studies were made (1) to determine the effect of air and oxygen and verying concentrations in distilled water, on the solubility of iron pyrites; (2) to determine the effect of acid, base and buffer solutions of varying pH; (3) to observe the effect of some oxidizing and reducing agents on the solubility of iron pyrites. These investigations would aid in deciding the possibilities of using iron pyrites as a soil conditioner.
