Variations of Basal Spacing of Synthetic Gyrolite and Z-phase with Acid Treatment

2003 Journal of the Society of Inorganic Materials, Japan  
Synthetic gyrolite and Z-phase were subjected to treatment with different amount of 0.1N-HCl at 25•Ž. The removal of interlayer calcium ions and shrinkage of basal spacing occur at the early stage of acid treatment, the basal spacing decreasing to 2.06 nm for synthetic gyrolite and 1.34 nm for Z-phase. For acid-treated products subjected to soak in water at 60•Ž for 20 h, recovery of basal spacing took place and it may be considered that calcium ions move from octahedral sheets, O and O into
