Interaction of water and clay minerals

SURFACE CHEMISTRY

Interaction of Water and Clay Minerals


A origins of charge deficiencies

A.Origins of Charge Deficiencies

  • Permanent

  • pH-dependent

(due to isomorphous substitution)

(variable, due to edges)


A origins of charge deficiencies1

A.Origins of Charge Deficiencies

  • Imperfections in the crystal lattice -Isomorphous substitution.

    • The cations in the octahedral or tetrahedral sheet can be replaced by different kinds of cations without change in crystal structure (similar physical size of cations).

      For example,

      Al3+ in place of Si4+ (Tetrahedral sheet)

      Mg2+ instead of Al3+(Octahedral sheet)

      unbalanced charges (charge deficiencies)

    • This is the main source of charge deficiencies for montmorillonite.

    • Only minor isomorphous substitution takes place in kaolinite.

3. Proton equilibria (pH-dependent charges)

Kaolinite particles are positively charged on their edges when in a low pH environment, but negatively charged in a high pH (basic) environment.

3. Proton equilibria (pH-dependent charges)

H+ bound tightly, so the lower the pH, the less exchange there is (i.e., lower nutrient availability)

Especially important in kaolinite, humus, where no internal charge imbalance

  • 4. Adsorbed ion charge (inner sphere complex charge and outer sphere complex charge)

    Ions of outer sphere complexes do not lose their hydration spheres. The inner complexes have direct electrostatic bonding between the central atoms.

C.“Charged” Clay Particles

  • External or interlayer surfaces are negatively charged in general.

  • The edges can be positively or negatively charged.

  • Different cations balance charge deficiencies.

The water molecule “locked” in the adsorbed layers has different properties compared to that of the bulk water due to the strong attraction from the surface.

Na+ crystal radius: 0.095 nm

cation

Clay layers

The water molecules wedge into the interlayer after adding water

The cations are fully hydrated, which results in repulsive forces and expanding clay layers (hydration energy).

From Oxtoby et al., 1994

The concentration of cations is higher in the interlayers (A) compared with that in the solution (B) due to negatively charged surfaces. Because of this concentration difference, water molecules tend to diffuse toward the interlayer in an attempt to equalize concentration.
