What is it about?

Kaolin clay has been activated by 4M hydrochloric acid and the study is based on the physicochemical characterization techniques such as FT-IR, XRD, TGA, DTA/DSC, and SEM.

Why is it important?

Different industries like rubber, paper, pharmaceuticals, cement, and chemical have been used kaolin as a potential agent for production. Therefore the acid activation for this type may help for further modification and increase production.


I hope this article will help to understand the different changes or modifications after acid-activation of Kaolin clay. This investigation has to lead the kaolin utility for better applications with its modified structure and special properties.
