Abstract: The variable coefficient modified Korteweg-de Vries (mKdV) equations for incident and reflected solitons are derived and solved to study the reflection of compressive and rarefactive ion acoustic solitons at the critical density in an inhomogeneous negative ion plasma. The polarity of the incident compressive and rarefactive solitons is not altered during the reflection process. Increasing the density gradient reinforces the reflection of both compressive and rarefactive mKdV solitons, whereas enhancement of the unperturbed plasma density weakens the reflection
