In

are natural materials, inexpensive, commonly available, non-toxic, and environmentally harmless. Clays include clay minerals, especially phyllosilicates with layered structures. Phyllosilicates can be used as sorbents of heavy metals cations, for fixing metal or metal oxide NPs ( Weiss & Kužvart, 2005 ). Kaolinite/TiO 2 composite is an example of an extremely useful material that improves the photocatalytic degradation of organic contaminants in water and air, particularly subsequent to calcination. The photoactivity of the kaolinite/TiO 2 composite increased

Cuadros and Dudek (2006). In the light of these studies, smectite kaolinization is a solid-state transformation that proceeds through progressive removal of tetrahedra from smectite layers and the corresponding increase of OH groups in the octahedral sheet. This process leads to the development of kaolinite-like patches or domains within smectite layers. However, the development of the patches and their collapse to ~7 Å (as measured by XRD) do not progress si- multaneously, because the collapse happens only when the patches acquire sufÞ cient size. In a similar

fluid/rock ratio ( Rozalén et al. 2008 ). In comparison to the two above-mentioned transformation pathways, the transformation of 1:1 type clay minerals to 2:1 type ones is less commonly observed. The illitization of kaolinite is mostly reported for the transformation of 1:1 to 2:1 type ones, mainly occurring in diagenesis and low-grade metamorphism ( Dunoyer de Segonzac 1970 ; Sommer 1978 ; Dutta and Suttner 1986 ; Lanson et al. 1996 , 2002 ), and under hydrothermal conditions ( Šucha et al. 1998 ; Bentabol et al. 2003a , 2003b , 2006 ). Such transformation

detailed studies on kaolinite and illite clays in relation to geotechnical properties;whether or not both clays have an important role in engineering design. The reduction in strength of soft clays causes a decrease in bearing capacity and excessive settlement [ 7 ]. Kaolinite does not respond to chemical modifications but Na-smectite is highly sensitive to the variation of the chemistry of the pore fluid [ 8 ]. Lime-clay reactions depend on several factors such as mineralogical composition of clayey soil, the quantity of lime employed for treatment, and moisture content
