The relationship between zeolite (heulandite-clinoptilolite) content and the ammonium-exchange capacity of pyroclastic rocks in Gördes, Turkey
Abstract Diagenetic alteration in two tuff horizons (the lower and upper tuff units) in the Gördes region of Turkey led to the formation of mainly heulandite-clinoptilolite-type zeolites and alsoExpand

A study on the characteristics of some opals from Turkey
The mineralogical characteristics of some Turkish opal-CTs collected from West and Middle Anatolia were studied. They are originated from Eocene to Upper Miocene aged volcanic-sedimentary formations.Expand

Genesis of smectite in siliciclastics and pyroclastics of the Eocene İslambeyli Formation in the Lalapaşa region, NW Thrace, Turkey
Abstract The Eocene İslambeyli Formation in the Lalapaşa region (NW Thrace, Turkey) consists predominantly of siliciclastic clayey clastics at the bottom and of claystone, tuff and tuffaceousExpand

X-Ray Diffraction Intensity Ratios I(111)/I(3¯11) of Natural Heulandites and Clinoptilolites
Heulandite-group zeolites are abundant in the Miocene pyroclastics from Western Anatolia, Turkey. We investigated the relation between the I(111)/I(3¯11) intensity ratios measured by X-rayExpand

First U–Pb SHRIMP zircon and 40Ar/39Ar ages of metarhyolites from the Afyon–Bolkardag Zone, SW Turkey: Implications for the rifting and closure of the Neo-Tethys
Abstract The Afyon–Bolkardag Zone (ABZ) is one of the most important metamorphic zones in Turkey. This zone consists of metasedimentary and metavolcanic rocks, which have undergone regionalExpand

Production of desiccants from Turkish bentonites
Abstract Representative samples of three Turkish bentonites were investigated with the aim of producing moisture adsorbents, so-called desiccants, of commercial grade: 1) Ca-bentonite fromExpand

Contribution of cations and layer charges in the smectite structure on zeta potential of Ca-bentonites
Abstract The Ca-bentonite occurrences in Edirne-Lalapasa region of NW Turkey comprise economically important minable deposits which originate from the Eocene and Oligocene formations exposed in theExpand

The separation efficiency of Na-bentonite by hydrocyclone and characterization of hydrocyclone products
Abstract Upgrading of bentonites in sodium or mixed forms through wet separation methods is considered because such low solid suspensions require filtration followed by drying. These wet separationExpand

Ceramic properties of kaolinized tuffaceous rocks in Kesan region, Thrace, NW Turkey
Abstract The Kesan–Karlikoy kaolin occurrence is located in the SW Thrace (Turkey) and was formed by the alteration of tuffaceous rocks. The tuff and tuffaceous units are made up of (1) bentonite,Expand

Simultaneous purification and modification process for organobentonite production
Abstract Bentonites are commonly subjected to a water and energy intensive purification process in order to obtain high-grade montmorillonite, prior to modification to suit technological needs. InExpand
