Extraction Techniques

  • Akshoy Kumar Chakraborty


In olden days, even before the advent of X-rays and in absence of modern sophisticated phase characterization facilities, researchers were solely dependent upon chemical extraction techniques in order to dissolve component oxides so as to ascertain the nature of heated products of kaolinites as reviewed by Brindley and Nakahira (1959). Besides extraction techniques, dye absorption test and rehydration test on metakaolinite were also undertaken to reveal its nature.
