The search for meaningful and desirable biochar properties is still under way. Nevertheless, there are certain chemical and physical properties that are widely considered relevant to the behaviour and function of biochar in soil. In this chapter, some of the more accessible properties are described, giving the reader the necessary tools and understanding to grasp the interaction of biochar in the soil environment covered in Chapter 4.
