2) revealed the presence of gibbsite
in the LV-PG, and, possibly, a lower kaolinite concentration.
Both soils had low CEC which was due to the dominant presence of kaolinite and gibbsite
in their clay fraction .
53 Mineralogy Content Kaolinite, Muscovite, None Gibbsite
and Quartz Heavy Metals Content (mg/L) i) Chromium, Cr 0.
Kaolinite mainly coexists with gibbsite
and anatase, and the edges of the gibbsite
that are adjacent to the kaolinite show clear corrosion (Fig.

, kaolinite and hydroxy-Alinterlayered 2:1 clay minerals in a perudic Andosol.
In lithofacies-1 (laterite / bauxite / kaolinite) the goethite, kaolinite, boehmite, gibbsite
and dickite minerals may owe to insitu leaching of older rocks.
The available alumina and reactive silica results quoted are based on low temperature bomb analysis (143AC), and the results indicate that the majority of alumina present is as the tri-hydrate mineral gibbsite
It converts the aluminum gibbsite
salts in the waste to sodium aluminate, which also can be removed with water.
It is a shallow deposit with the dominant mineral being gibbsite
They organized the material along the same outline as well, discussing the formation and properties of gibbsite
, describing the experimental data that constrain surface-complexation models and the procedure followed to extract model constants from the data, examining the potentiometric titration data fitting and surface acidity constant extraction for gibbsite
, presenting the available cation and anion sorption data for gibbsite
and the results of fitting the data with the generalized model, and investigating linear free energy relationships for identifying trends in sorption data and predicting surface-complexation constants for conditions not yet studied experimentally.
The mineralogy of the clay fraction of these soils is characterised by the prominence of kaolin, hematite, goethite, gibbsite
, and titanium oxides (Fontes and Weed 1991; Singh and Gilkes 1992b; Melo et al.
Quartz is common in the JSO-1: JSO2 mixed soils including the plagioclase and gibbsite
(Terashima et al.
It was historically used as an ore of aluminum and later in the electrolytic processing of the aluminum rich oxide ore bauxite (itself a combination of aluminum oxide minerals such as gibbsite
, boehmite and diaspore).
In Figure 7 the electrokinetic behaviour of kaolinite and halloysite is compared with gibbsite
The reagents used as pre-cursors were silica gel, phosphoric acid, phosphorus pentoxide, phosphate of monobasic ammonium, alumina and gibbsite
