Book Description

10 April 1997 0195087135 978-0195087130 2
Used as a reference for both researchers and workers in the industry, this newly revised second edition, explores the applications and limitations of data produced by the interaction of X-rays with crystalline minerals, adding two completely new chapters on disordered polytypes using X-Ray powder diffraction, and clay minerals in soils. Essential in agriculture and in making informed engineering decisions, this book offers the necessary knowledge of the properties of these minerals, combining theoretical discussion with recipe-like directions.

By V Tuck
The only good book I've found for researchers and postgraduate students new to practical XRD identification of clays. Includes sample preparation techniques and all the information you could need to pin point that clay, including the limitations of the technique. It's a bit dry and information-dense in places but the writers have done their best to make this subject easy to understand, and the writing style is nicely informal.
It may be a bit over the top for those of you who just want an intro to general XRD work, but if you are really going to use XRD to identify that clay and you want to be able to understand the results and not look like an idiot in front of the technicians, then I recommend this book.
