Maps of clay mineralskaolinite, illite and smectite in

Clay minerals are the most reactive inorganic components of soils. They help to determine soil properties and largely govern their behaviors and functions. Clay minerals also play important roles in biogeochemical cycling and interact with the environment to affect geomorphic processes such as weathering, erosion and deposition.

Mechanism of illite formation during smectite-to-illite

the smectite-to-illite conversion requires an understand-ing of the mechanisms and kinetics of smectite dissolu-tion and illite growth in a given natural environment. The purpose ofthe present paper is to describe the mechanism of illite growth during the smectite-to-illite conversion for I/S with 50-00/o expandable layers.
