The thermal behaviour of mechanochemically treated kaolinite has been investigated under dynamic and controlled rate thermal analysis (CRTA) conditions. Ten hours of grinding of kaolinite results in the loss of the d(001) spacing and the replacement of some 60% of the kaolinite hydroxyls with water. Kaolinite normally dehydroxylates in a single mass loss stage between 400 and 600°C. CRTA technology enables the dehydroxylation of the ground mineral to be observed in four overlapping stages at 385, 404, 420 and 433°C under quasi-isobaric condition in a self-generated atmosphere. It is proposed that mechanochemical treatment of the kaolinite causes the localization of the protons when the long range ordering is lost.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
