Exposing materials to temperatures of 1200 [degrees]C led to the transformation of the K-A-S-H gel by structurally reorganizing and subsequently crystallizing leucite (KAlSi2O6)- and kalsilite (KAlSiO4)-type structures for each system under study (PS, RHA, SF).
A series of crystalline phases summarized by the reaction sequence kaolinite K-chabazite zeolite K-F unidentified potassium aluminosilicate phase kalsilite + leucite was identified in the system [K.
Name: For the relationship with kalsilite the most common form of KAlSi[O.
Relationship to other species: It has some structural similarities to kalsilite, KAlSi[O.
