Two simple methods for reducing preferential orientation of kaolinite and dickite in porvder mounts for the r-ray diffractometer have been evaluated. Neither of these methods requires the use of diluents or any unusual amount of sample preparation. Grinding the porvder in a high-speed vibratory mill is shorvn to reduce the orientation index to a… (More)
