Thermal treatment of mechanochemically activated kaolinite
Horvath, Erzsebet, Frost, Ray L., Mako, Eva, Kristof, Janos, & Cseh, Tamas (2003) Thermal treatment of mechanochemically activated kaolinite. Thermochimica Acta, 404(1-2), pp. 227-234.
The mechanochemical activation of a high defect kaolinite has been studied using a combination of high-resolution thermogravimetry and DRIFT spectroscopy. The effect of grinding causes a decrease in the dehydroxylation temperature and an increase in the amount of adsorbed/coordinated water. The temperature of dehydration also increases with grinding time. It is proposed that this dehydroxylation occurs through a homogenous process involving proton transfer through point heating. The amount of adsorbed water decreases with the increase in temperature of the thermal treatment.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
