Redox Behaviour of Iron in Hydroxylated Silicates

W. E. Addison
1962 Clays and clay minerals  
The oxidation and reduction of clay minerals, particularly chamosite and nontronite, are compared with those of the amphibole crocidolite. Oxidation is very similar, but differences in behaviour on reduction are described. These differences are interpreted in terms of the different environments of the oxygen atoms in the various structures. Mechanisms of the various processes are discussed in detail.
