TL;DR: An overview of the chemical consititution and properties of clay minerals and the environmental conditions that lead to their formation is provided in this paper, where the authors provide a detailed view of the eight main groups of clays containing silica and non-siliceous oxide clays.
Abstract: Bringing together information widely distributed throughout scientific and industrial journals, here is an overview of the chemical consititution and properties of clay minerals and the environmental conditions that lead to their formation Provides a detailed picture of the chemical consititution of the eight main groups of clay minerals containing silica and of the non-siliceous oxide clays The central section of the book deals with the properties of clays: their colloidal behavior, cation exchange, interaction with water, reactions on heating, catalytic properties, and reactions with organic compounds Also discusses the chemical conditions that favor the formation of clays and their evolution or decomposition into other materials
TL;DR: Research is urgently needed on the structure ofpure clay minerals and on the reactions of pure clay minerals with organic and inorganic materials.
Abstract: The structures of the clay minerals are reasonably well known, but greater detail and more precision are needed if the properties of clays and soils are to be fully understood. For example, the selective adsorptive and catalytic properties and the reaction with organic materials vary with the character of the clay mineral, but the structural factors that control such properties are not well understood. Research is urgently needed on the structure of pure clay minerals and on the reactions of pure clay minerals with organic and inorganic materials. Much past research on clay-mineral reactions has little fundamental value because the clay that was used was composed of a mixture of minerals which were not well characterized. It is not a simple matter to find pure samples of many of the clay minerals, and to a considerable extent progress depends on finding such pure minerals or preparing them in the laboratory.
