This book presents current techniques in nuclear magnetic resonance, differential thermal analysis and thermogravimetry, visible spectroscopy, and infrared and thermal-infrared spectroscopy for the analysis of fine structures in organo-clay complexes. It will be of interest to physical, surface, colloid, inorganic, organic, medicinal, agricultural, and analytical chemists and biochemists; environmental, petroleum, and chemical engineers; biotechnologists; and advanced students in these disciplines.


  • Structure and surface acidity of clay minerals;
  • introduction to organo-clay complexes and interactions;
  • interactions of vermiculites with organic compounds;
  • organophilicity and hydrophobicity of organo-clays;
  • adsorption of organic cations on clays - experimental results and modelling;
  • nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy;
  • thermal analysis of organo-clay complexes;
  • IR-spectroscopy and thermo-IR-spectroscopy in the study of the fine structure of organo-clay complexes;
  • staining of clay minerals and visible-absorption spectroscopy of dye-dye complexes;
  • clay catalysis in reactions of organic matter;
