Methylene blue adsorption as a rapid and economical method of detecting smectite



Methylene blue adsorption as a rapid and economical method of detecting smectite



ASTM Geotechnical Testing Journal 11(1): 68-71



Methylene blue adsorption is found to be an effective method of indicating when smectite is present in major amounts in mudrocks or along discontinuities. For example, the Pierre Shale, which typically contains 30 to 40% smectite along with 25 to 45% mixed-layered smectite-illite has a MBA value of 48.5; whereas, the Palestine Shale, which has illite rather than smectite as its chief component has a MBA value of only 7.0.--Modified journal abstract.
