The influence of surface structure on the dehydroxylation of synthetic goethite has been studied using heat-flux differential scanning calorimetry. Adsorption of various anions by goethite causes a progressive change in both the amount and environment of surface hydroxyls and this is reflected by changes in the DSC curves. These alterations indicate the importance of surface features in determining the course of dehydroxylation and further suggest that, in studies of this type of reaction, the use of synthetic products known to be free of surface contaminants could prove to be of great value in understanding dehydroxylation mechanisms.
