Bentonite

Bentonite clay is fine grained almost impalpable material, very soft and more or less coherent when dry or plastic and retentive of water when wet. It has a strong earthy odor when breathed upon or moistures and consists essentially of hydrous Alumina silicate with various impurities.

Bentonite now generally describes clay consisting essentially of the selective mineral montmorillonite, regardless of its origin occurrence.

Montmorillonite is hydrated upto 550íc above this temperature crystallographic changes begin. Below this temperature the same will retemper. Montmorillonite absorb water in reversible manner.

Chemical formula: { Al Mg Fe }4 {Si Al }8 O20 (OH)4 nH2O
