Hi,
Clays have an awesome ability to adsorb. Surface area of 1g clay is 
usually well over 100square metres. And it is charged to boot.How do you 
know there was any ampicillin in a condition to do anything ?
There was a guy some decades ago who reckoned he could identify a soil 
by the differential adsorption of various antibiotics.
