Kaolinitic clay contains approx. 8 % water, as can be seen
from the TGA analysis (Fig. 5), which results from physical-
ly adsorbed water (up to 105 °C), and at about 140 °C

water is released from smectite. At about 400 °C, its
structure collapses together with the beginning of kaolini-
te dehydroxylation.
