A spectroscopic comparison of selected Chinese kaolinite, coal bearing kaolinite and halloysite : a mid-infrared and near-infrared study
Frost, Ray L., Yang, Jing, & Cheng, Hongfei (2010) A spectroscopic comparison of selected Chinese kaolinite, coal bearing kaolinite and halloysite : a mid-infrared and near-infrared study. Spectrochimica Acta Part A : Molecular and Biomolecular Spectroscopy, 77(4), pp. 856-861.
Mid-infrared (MIR) and near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy have been compared and evaluated for differentiating kaolinite, coal bearing kaolinite and halloysite. Kaolinite, coal bearing kaolinite and halloysite are the three relative abundant mineral of the kaolin group, especially in China. In the MIR spectra, the differences are shown in the 3000-3600 cm-1 between kaolinite and halloysite. It can not be obviously differentiated the kaolinite and halloysite, let alone kaolinite and coal bearing kaolinite. However, NIR, together with MIR, give us the sufficient evidence to differentiate the kaolinite and halloysite, especially kaolinite and coal bearing kaolinite. There are obvious differences between kaolinite and halloysite in the all range of their spectra, and it also show some difference between kaolinite and coal bearing kaolinite. Therefore, the reproducibility of measurement, signal to noise ratio and richness of qualitative information should be simultaneously considered for proper selection of a spectroscopic method for mineral analysis.
