Victoria Spivak, Igor Astrelin, Natalia Tolstopalova and Iryna Atamaniuk

The physico-chemical, structural and adsorption characteristics of saponite mineral from Tashkivske clay-field and their changes under the influence of acid, thermal and ultrasonic activation were investigated. Stabilization mechanism of the colloidal system “saponite-water” under the influence of stabilizing agents was studied. Moreover, the effectiveness of saponite multipurpose usage was proved by experiments.
