Illite, chlorite, montmorillonite and kaolinite, as well as
natural marine sediments and mixtures of the standards were subjected
to density separation by centrifugation in a linear heavy-liquid
The density layers yielded by centrifugation were recovered
and analyzed by X-ray diffraction. Separates were not monomineralic
but rather were polymineralic usually...
Water and methanol adsorption isotherms at 25° and 37° C.
were determined on a series of organo-bentonite clays. The clays
differed in the length of the carbon chain attached to the amine adsorbed
in the cation exchange position. The amines used had carbon
chains of 4, 6, 8, 10, 12,...
