STUDY AND APPLICATION OF CLAY RNM199


Description

The research group the Study and Applications of Clay Minerals, in the Department of Inorganic Chemistry, Crystallography and Mineralogy in the Faculty of Science, studies natural clays in their different geological environments to subsequently conduct its experimental synthesis. This interdisciplinary team is composed of 3 geologists and 2 chemists that are engaged in the study of the clays and the mica components of the Gibraltar Arc area –specifically the Betic Cordillera in Southern Spain and in the Rif Cordillera; Northern Morocco–. During their latest research, this group have been studying the kaolinite –clay mineral– and phyllosilicates –and paying specific attention to mica–.


Research Topics

  • Low-grade metamorphic study.
  • Crystallochemical of clay minerals.
  • Experimental mineralogy in clays.
  • Modifying clay properties.

Scientific-Technical Services

  • Implementation of petrologic and mineralogical studies of geological formations for public works and/or interested companies.
  • Participation and organisation of conferences, workshops, and masters in relation with the research topics.
