INFRARED SPECTROSCOPY OF REACTED MIXTURES OF OTAY BENTONITE AND LIME

MIXTURES OF THREE TYPES OF LIME, BENTONITE, AND WATER WERE ANALYZED BY INFRARED SPECTROSCOPY AFTER THREE YEARS OF REACTION AT 23 DEG C UNDER CONDITIONS APPROACHING 100% RH, AND AFTER HYDROTHERMAL REACTION AT 40 DEG, 80DEG, AND 170 DEG, C. THE PROCEDURE WAS EFFECTIVE FOR THE ANALYSIS OF COMPLEX MIXTURE COMPONENTS. NEW COMPOUNDS IDENTIFIED IN THE 23 DEG C MIXTURES WERE CALCIUM CARBONATE, AS WELL AS HYDRATES OF CALCIUM SILICATE AND CALCIUM ALUMINATE. TOBERMORITE WAS IDENTIFIED IN ALL 170 C MIXTURES, WITH INDICATIONS OF SERPENTINE AND POSSIBLY CHLORITE IN MIXTURES CONTAINING DOLOMITIC LIME, PARTICULARLY THE MONOHYDRATED FORM. REMNANTS OF THE INITIAL COMPONENTS NOT USED IN THE REACTION WERE ALSO NOTED. IMPLICATIONS FOR THE ANALYSIS OF COMPOUND STRUCTURES ARE DISCUSSED, WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO LATTICE SUBSTITUTION OF ALUMINUM AND MAGNESIUM. /AUTHOR/
