Abstract

The conversion of smectite to illite-smectite is also found in some natural systems that have never been heated. The present experiments show that illite layers can form from smectite by chemical reaction at 35?? and 60??C at high solution pH. The rate of this reaction is accelerated by wetting and drying. -from Authors
