THE DIFFERENTIAL THERMAL INVESTIGATION OF CLAYS.

By MacKenzie, Robert C. (edited by)

Mineralogical Society:, 1957. 456 pages. "Some five years ago the Clay Minerals Group of the Mineralogical Soceity published, under the aegis and with generous assistance of the Mineralogical Society, a monograph upon "X-Ray Identification and Crystal Structures of Clay Minerals", edited by Dr. G.W. Brindley. The present volume was originally envisaged as a companion to that monograph, but it was early realized that differential thermal analysis is as yet less fully developed as a diagnostic technique and consequently merits rather different treatment. Thus, although facets which might render curves diagnositc have been empahsized throughout, the main concern of the various authors have been to present a balanced critical account of current knowledge: in this way it may safely be left to the reader to decide whether the technique can be usefully applied to any particular problem."
