Paper Abstract

Diffuse reflectance infrared Fourier transform spectroscopy has been used to identify hydrothermal alteration products of feldspars. In acidic media, kaolinite clay is the major product. The presence of divalent metal ions in saline solutions induces formation of montmorillonite clay. Cesium is incorporated into an alumi•osilicate lattice as pollucite. DRIFTS is shown to be effective in rapidly identifying these reaction products.
