Batch reactor experiments were performed at 358 and 808C to determine the effect of high molar KOH solutions on the mineralogy and solution chemistry of two different smectites. The Ceca smectite is a nearly pure montmorillonite, and the Ibeco clay has a significant component of 35% beidellitic charge. Each reactor was charged with 1 g of <2 mm fraction smectite and 80, 160, 240 ml of 0.1ÿ4 M KOH solution. In these experiments, the changes in solution composition and mineralogy were monitored… CONTINUE READING
