The Cation-Exchange Capacity of Hydrated Halloysite and the Formation of Halloysite-Salt Complexes*

Examination of the cation-exchange capacity of a hydrated halloysite from Djebel Debar has disclosed no evidence for the proposed existence of exchangeable interlayer ions. A series of labile halloysite-salt complexes has been prepared. The requirements for effective intercalation of the salt are a high salt concentration in the external solution phase and a cation of low hydration energy.
