Abstract

Previous work has demonstrated that the degree of crystal perfection in kaolinite can be correlated with many physical properties. In this paper some further relationships are shown, including surface area, base exchange capacity, total percentage of iron and titanium, and high-temperature mullitization. Surface area, base exchange capacity, and the total amount of iron and titanium in the clay increase as the degree of crystal perfection decreases.
