dc.description.abstract The object of the present work has been to study the adsorption of hydrocarbon vapors on various types of clays, and to learn from this adsorption study the relative importance of various factors, both chemical and physical, which determine the adsorptive phenomena. The initial work was designed to learn the relative magnitude and flexibility of adsorption due to the following factors: (1) The atomic structure of the mineral grain. (2) The degree of dispersion of the clay grains, and the relative importance of the external surfaces. (3) The relative importance of the spacing of secondary aggregates, i.e., spaces between the clay grains. (4) The effect of exchangeable ions within the clay grains. (5) The effect of intra particle spaces, or channels of near molecular sizes in the primary grain structure.
