Some of the common applications that we work with are listed below:
Speciation and quantification of clay minerals including:
Through a combination of XRD using Siroquant, SEM imaging and PIMA analyses we were able to quantify the amount of clays in the samples.
Clays are treated with ethylene glycol and heated to 400c and 550c as per USGS guidelines for clay identification.
