Note on the Intercalation of Kaolinite, Dickite and Halloysite by Dimethyl-Sulfoxide

Octavian Anton
1977 Clays and clay minerals  
Various kaolinites, a dickite and halloysites have been treated by DMSO in presence of D20 and subsequently washed by D20. This procedure allowed to record OD stretching bands which are due specifically to the intercalated fraction and, for the washed samples, to the fraction of the solid which has been intercalated and has subsequently collapsed. No structural difference is found between the intercalated materials prepared from the various minerals. Washing usually restores the starting
