Series: Developments in Clay Science

The Developments in Clay Sciences series has been designed to provide a comprehensive source of detailed information on all aspects of clay research. The series aims to compile studies in all fields of clay science. Topics covered include the entire range of the discipline from geology, sedimentology, mineralogy, crystallography, geochemistry, chemistry, physics and colloid science to applications of clays in ceramics and all aspects of industrial, geotechnical, agricultural and environmental uses.

Most recent volume

Volume 9. Surface and Interface Chemistry of Clay Minerals

Published: 1st November 2018 Editors: Robert Schoonheydt Cliff Johnston Faïza Bergaya

Surface and Interface Chemistry of Clay Minerals, Ninth Edition delivers a fundamental understanding of the surface and interface chemistry of clay minerals, thus serving as a valuable resource for researchers active in the fields of materials chemistry and sustainable chemistry. Clay minerals, with surfaces ranging from hydrophilic, to hydrophobic, are widely studied and used as adsorbents. Adsorption can occur at the edges and surfaces of clay mineral layers and particles, and in the interlayer region. This diversity in properties and the possibility to tune the surface properties of clay minerals to match the properties of adsorbed molecules is the basis for study.

The book requires a fundamental understanding of the surface and interface chemistry of clay minerals, and of the interaction between adsorbate and adsorbent.
