Infrared and Raman Spectroscopies of Clay Minerals, Volume 8 in the Developments in Clay Science series, is an up-to-date overview of spectroscopic techniques used in the study of clay minerals. The methods include infrared spectroscopy, covering near-IR (NIR), mid-IR (MIR), far-IR (FIR) and IR emission spectroscopy (IES), as well as FT-Raman spectroscopy and Raman microscopy. This book complements the succinct introductions to these methods described in the original Handbook of Clay Science (Volumes 1, 1st Edition and 5B, 2nd Edition), offering greater depth and featuring the most important literature since the development and application of these techniques in clay science. No other book covers such a wide variety of vibrational spectroscopic techniques in a single volume for clay and soil scientists.

Key Features

  • Includes a systematic review of spectroscopic methods
  • Covers the theory of infrared and Raman spectroscopies and instrumentation
  • Features a series of chapters each covering either a particular technique or application


Research scientists, university teachers, industrial chemists, physicists, graduate students, as well as environmental engineers and technologists

About the Series Volume Editors

Will Gates

Will P. Gates, PhD, is a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Frontier Materials, Deakin University, Victoria, Australia. He received his PhD in Clay Mineralogy and Soil Physical Chemistry at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, Illinois, USA in 1994, and MSc at New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA in 1987 and a BSc at Montana State University, Montana, USA. He joined the CSIRO (Adelaida, South Australia, Australia) as a Senior Research Scientist in 1997 and since that time has applied a variety of spectroscopic tools, clay mineralogy and physical chemistry to the study and application of bentonites and bentonite products in the waste (containment and reuse), chemicals (synthesis, green chemistry), mining (barriers, tailings dewatering and water reuse), agricultural and mineral exploration industries. He was recipient of the Marion L., and Christie M. Jackson Mid Career Clay Science Award by The Clay Minerals Society, Chantilly, Virginia, USA.

Faïza Bergaya

Dr Faiza Annabi-Bergaya obtained a Licence-ès-Science in Physical-Chemistry from the University of Tunis in 1966, a first PhD in Inorganic Chemistry in 1971 from University La Sorbonne-Paris VI and a second PhD in Physics in 1978 from the University of Orleans (France). She started her career in 1971 at the CNRS from which she is presently Emeritus Research Director. Her research interest is focused on the Physics and Chemistry of clays and clay minerals. She is member of the AIPEA Nomenclature Committee. She was Secretary of the ECGA in 1999-2003. As President of the GFA (French Clay Group) in 2003-2007, she created the annual meetings of the GFA, organizing the first two meetings in Orleans. She launched the Series Developments in Clay Science with the publication in 2006 of Volume 1 (Handbook of Clay Science) and she is Series Editor since 2013. She is Editor-in-Chief of Applied Clay Science since 2012.
