The hydrotalcite minerals stitchtite, iowaite and desautelsite together with the arsenate exchanged takovite and arsenate exchanged hydrotalcite have been studied using near-IR reflectance spectroscopy. Each mineral has its own characteristic NIR spectrum enabling recognition of the particular hydrotalcite. As such the technique has application in the field… CONTINUE READING
