The identified peaks are from the minerals kaolinite (K), gibbsite
(G), quartz (Q), and hematite (H).
Equatorial and tropical weathering of recent basalts from Cameroon: allophanes, halloysite, metahalloysite, kaolinite and gibbsite
Key words: Mineralogical, petrographical, lithofacies, Salt Range, Permian, Cretaceous, kaolinite, goethite, boehmite, gibbsite
, dickite, glauconite, chamosite, chlorite, nacrite, micrite, microclasts.
The bauxite zone is characterised by gibbsite
and varies from 1m to 8m in thickness.
is present in Oxisols derived from limestone (Ak1) and basalt (Ti1, Ti2, Ti3, Nb1, Nb2) under more humid conditions.

In this way the pH dependence of the electrokinetic behaviour of the two layer silicates can be rationalized by comparison with the electrokinetic behaviour of silica and gibbsite
or brucite as appropriate.
In the literature, nanoencapsulation of colloidal nanoparticles has included metals (Au, Ag, Fe/Fe2O3), semiconductors (CdS, ZnS, CdSe/ZnSe), polymers (polystyrene, polydimethylsiloxane), and inorganic oxides (boehmite rods, gibbsite
The various Fe and Al oxide minerals, including hematite, goethite, and gibbsite
, are the most common nonsilicate clay colloids found in most soils.
