Abstract: method for the determination of the crystallochemical characteristics
of montmorillonites present in natural specimens has been worked out.
It is based on the transfer of the montmorillonite into an alkylpyridine
complex which is subsequently extracted into a nonaqueous organic solvent.
By using this method, the evaluation of the content of montmorillonite
as well as of the total amount of admixtures is also possible. The factors
influencing the accuracy of this method are discussed and the method itself
is verified on four natural specimens of montmorillonite.
