Wood ash composition apparently varies with species burnt and the temperature of the fire ... it is a mixture of stable inorganic oxides, carbonates and other oxidised elements. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:43, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

Under "Variability in assessment" in "Composition," the passage reads "...twelve percent iron oxide (FeO, et al)." What is (FeO, et al)? It seems that the abbreviation for iron oxide got mixed up a citation. Qelmasri (talk) 23:56, 28 April 2015 (UTC)Qelmasri

Removed the FeO as the iron would all be oxidized. Vsmith (talk) 13:06, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
