The effects of pH and lanthanide (La, Y) concentration were investigated on the release of iron from Ca-bentonite crystal structure. XRF results revealed that during the Ca–H cation exchange procedure iron loss was not observed. In the case of lanthanide modifications, the pH has low influence, meanwhile the concentration of lanthanide has high influence on iron loss. Thus, high amount of trivalent lanthanides cause the structural iron release.
