Abstract

The alteration of thirty-nine trioctahedral micas to vermiculite has been characterized by the K level, which is determined by repeated measurements of the stationary K concentration in the altering solution and provides a practical way of comparing the sensitivity to alteration. A calculated regression equation allows the K level of a sample to be predicted from its chemical composition. The model proposed for the alteration reaction outlines the physico-chemical meaning of the K level, with its experimental and theoretical limitations.
