Abstract

Vermiculite is one of the most recent important nonmetallic minerals to be exploited for use in the industrial world. For this reason, the fund of knowledge relating to this mineral is rather limited. This paper represents the results of laboratory studies that were undertaken to contribute data to this fund of knowledge.
