Thermal Analysis of Kaolin Clays: Correlation with X-Ray Crystallinity Data

  • Donald E. Koopman
Conference paper


Thermal analysis and x-ray diffraction data have been obtained on five samples of selected kaolinite. These samples are essentially mono-mineralic and differ in crystallinity from well-crystallized to poorly crystallized.
