Among the layer silicate clays, rectorite (REC) is a kind of regular interstratified clay consisting of a muscovite-like layer and a montmorillonite-like layer in the ratio of 1:1 (4).
The 53 selected and peer-reviewed papers consider the use of the materials in the industry from such perspectives as complete benzene oxidation over colloidal gold catalysts supported on nanostructure zinc oxide, effects of wastewater from dyeing and printing on the combustion of coal powder, inactivating Escherichia coli on titanium dioxide photocatalysis nanoparticles, preparing and characterizing aluminum-pillared rectorite, preparing phase-change building materials, surface physicochemical properties of easy-cleaning ceramic, evaluating healthy living water, predicting the melting of organic phase-change materials for energy storage with simple low eutectic systems, and research and university education in ecological environment functional materials in China.
They include carnallite, cuprite, dolomite, gypsum, halite, hematite, magnesite, pyrite, quartz, rectorite, rinneite, sylvite and syngenite.
Dioctahedral regular interstratifications of this type are: rectorite (Il-Sm, with [K.
Rectorite (REC), another type of layered silicate material, is defined as a 1:1 type of layer structure arranged regularly with an alternating dioctahedral mica layer and dioctahedral smectite layer.
They have been named as mineral species: rectorite (di Mi-di Mo, Bradley, 1950), corrensite (Ch-Ve or Ch-Sm, Lippmann, 1954, 1956), aliettite (Ta-Sa, Alietti, 1956; Veniale and v.
Rectorite clay forms leafy pale green, 1-2 cm aggregates on the faces of quartz crystals.
Rectorite (REC) is another type of mica-like layered silicate with about 2.
Most of the unusual species described below, including anhydrite, boracite, ericaite, hilgardite, magnesite, rectorite and syngenite were identified by X-ray powder diffraction at Manchester University.
