Characterisation of Bidor Kaolinite and Illite


Liew, Kong Yong and Khoo, Lean E. and Bong, K. T. (1985) Characterisation of Bidor Kaolinite and Illite. Pertanika, 8 (3). pp. 323-330.


Two types of commercial clay minerals from the Bidor region of Perak were studied. From the X-ray diffraction study, these clays were identified as disordered kaolinite and 2 M polymorph of illite. The morphologies, the surface properties, the pore structures and the infrared absorption properties were examined. The basis for the identification of these clays is discussed.
