Experiments, Using Natural Thermal Waters, on the Illitization of Interlayered Illite-Smectite and the Crystallinity of Illite

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We have investigated experimentally the effects of temperature and time on the extent of interstratification of illite-smectite (I/S) and the crystallinity of illite using natural solutions and clay minerals from the Waiotapu geothermal field, New Zealand. Reactions were conducted in sealed stainless steel vessels kept in an oven at 270 C for 100 days. These reactions increased the illite crystallinity but decreased the expandability of I/S.
