Abstract

Calculated X-ray diffraction profiles of 10 Aa-17 Aa interstratified clay minerals, which make allowance for fundamental illite particles, confirm many of the inferences made in a previous analysis by Corbato & Tettenhorst (1987). However, some of these profiles do not appear to match well with patterns obtained from real interstratified clay minerals. The lack of agreement is apparently a consequence of the assumption that the interlayer spacing formed at the contact of I and S (illite and smectite) silicate layers is exclusively 17 Aa. The results suggest that this interlayer spacing may be either 10 Aa or 17 Aa.
