Variability in sorbed water content was studied on several standard smectites, as dependent on the relative humidity (RH = 0.5, 0.95 and 1.0), on temperature (constant 30 °C and variable room temperature) and on sorption time (t s = 1, 12 and 32 days). The particle thickness, δ was estimated, assuming a given number of molecular layers of sorbed water at the given RH. δ decreased with the increase in the factors mentioned above. The thickest particles in dry state were found in hectorite and in… CONTINUE READING
