divided into the five common families montmorillonite, chlorite, vermiculite, illite, and kaolinite. one x-ray scan of a magnesium ion saturated, ethylene glycol treated sample was sufficient for the identification of all the clay minerals. a typical recent hemipelagic sed.ment contains about 40 percent,a regular mixedlayer chloritevermiculite mineral nature,various mixed-layer clay minerals have been reported in many publications. so far as the structure is concerned, the main interest in this field of investigations has been in examining the way of
chlorite structures are relatively thermally stable compared to kaolinite, vermiculite, and smectite minerals and are thus resistant to high temperatures. because of this, after heat treatment at 500 700 c, the presence of a characteristic x-ray diffraction peak at 14 is widely used to identify chlorite,chlorites and hydroxyinterlayered vermiculite,this chapter discusses the influence of hydroxy-ai interlayer components on the cation exchange capacity of smectites and vermiculites. hydroxy-ai interlayered smectite and vermiculite are thought to occur in soils as either weathering products derived from chlorite weathering or more commonly from the deposition of hydroxy-ai polymeric components within the interlayer spaces of these
the frequency with which vermiculitic and chloritic minerals as well as montmorillonites probably occur in soil-clays makes it necessary to have a clear-cut method for distinguishing them. the,significance of random illitevermiculite mixed layers in,sep 01, 2000 source areas of illite-vermiculite mixed layers illite-vermiculite mixed layers occur in recent northwestern atlantic sediments, the clay fraction of which is dominated by illite and chlorite biscaye, 1965 hathaway, 1972 dunn et al., 1987 deconinck amp vanderaveroet, 1996 which result predominantly from physical weathering and erosion of

smectite-illite and chlorite-vermiculite are two such well studied and char- acterized examples. where interlayering occurs it is general- ly assumed that there is no significant difference in octahe- dral site chemistry i.e., intergrowths are either of dom- inantly trioctahedral or dioctahedral layers.,nomenclature clay minerals,the ima commission on new minerals and mineral names has disapproved the name sangarite for a regular l 1 interstratification of trioctahedral chlorite-vermiculite drits and kossovskaya, 1963, and has approved the name tarasovite for a regular 3 1 interstratification of dioctahedral mica-smectite lazarenko and korolev, 1970. the aipea

chlorite this clay mineral is the weathering product of mafic silicates and is stable in cool, dry, or temperate climates. it occurs along with illite in midwestern soils. it is also found in some metamorphic rocks, such as chlorite schist. vermiculite this clay mineral has the ability to adsorb water, but not repeatedly. it is used as a soil,reactions of phosphoric acid with clay minerals,commercial clays comprised of montmorillomte, vermiculite, illite, chlorite, or kaolinite were treated with various amounts of phosphoric acid in the presence of water. progress of the reactions was checked by x-ray diffraction and chemical anal yses performed at certain intervals. lowering of treated clay
