About this book

Used as a reference for both researchers and workers in the industry, this newly revised second edition, explores the applications and limitations of data produced by the interaction of X-rays with crystalline minerals, adding two completely new chapters on disordered polytypes using X-Ray powder diffraction, and clay minerals in soils. Essential in agriculture and in making informed engineering decisions, this book offers the necessary knowledge of the properties of these minerals, combining theoretical discussion with recipe-like directions.

Review of the first edition: 'Altogether admirable... if ever a book is going to be a winner with students this is it! Highly recommended for all clay mineralogists... readable and lucidly written... the book will enable the reader to get the most out of the X-ray examination of clay minerals.' Clay Minerals
