As well as thermal methods, vermiculite may also be exfoliated chemically. By far the most effective chemical method known is that of using hydrogen peroxide (H 2 O 2).The exfoliating action of H 2 O 2 on particles of weathered mica was first noted independently by Drosdoff & Miles and Groves during soil particle size analyses procedures where H 2 O 2 was used to oxidize organic matter.

Forms as an alteration product of biotite or phlogopite, by weathering or hydrothermal action.Vermiculite is mined as a natural insulation material. The best exfoliation properties were observed not for pure vermiculite, but for intergrowths of vermiculite and other layer silicates (e.g. hydrobiotite). Naturally expanded vermiculite can occur in volcanic rocks.

Nov 21, 2012· Vermiculite is the name of a group of 2.1 phyllosilicate minerals that are composed of hydrated sheet silicates, which contain layers of water molecules within their internal structure, it is formed by the hydrothermal alteration of mica (Walker, 1961, Grim, 1968).When heated rapidly, vermiculite exfoliates as the interlayer water turns into steam, forcing the layers apart in an accordion
1. Introduction. The vermiculite is a 2:1 mineral with two tetrahedron layers on each side of one octahedron layer (hamburger type),similar to smectite minerals.It is well known that vermiculite has very high cation exchange capacity (120–150 meq/100 g) due to substitutions of Mg and Fe in place of Al in the octahedral sheets and, to a higher degree, substitutions of Al in place of Si in
