Clay Minerals as Solid Acids and Their Catalytic Properties.
Helsen, J.
Journal of Chemical Education, v59 n12 p1063-65 Dec 1982
Discusses catalytic properties of clays, attributed to acidity of the clay surface. The formation of carbonium ions on montmorillonite is used as a demonstration of the presence of surface acidity, the enhanced dissociation of water molecules when polarized by cations, and the way the surface can interact with organic substances.
