The dissolution of hectorite suspensions in M/20 CaCl2 has been studied under conditions of low acidity. The reaction was almost completed within 2 weeks but very slow changes continued. There was an initial preferential release of Mg which corresponded approximately to the number of Mg atoms exposed at the clay edges but thereafter Mg and Si were released into solution in nearly equimolar amounts until most of the clay was decomposed. The release of octahedral cations was equivalent to thedoi:10.1180/claymin.1968.007.3.01 fatcat:m4ofovh2qbe4bksq2lsfaqbgcu
