However, soil 7 had higher contents of interstratified illite-smectite and silt than did soil 5, which may have contributed to WEOC binding.
Modeling of the XRD tracings using NEWMOD showed the samples consist of R3-ordered illite-smectite (I-S) with 80% illite and 20% smectite plus a small amount of corrensite, which is a regularly interstratified chlorite-smectite.
After decomposing cements (carbonate and organic matter), it appears that the most abundant clay minerals are not chlorite or illite, but phases of a swelling type smectite or interstratified illite/smectite.
Among the layer silicate clays, rectorite (REC) is a kind of regular interstratified clay consisting of a muscovite-like layer and a montmorillonite-like layer in the ratio of 1:1 (4).

2002), who reported that while the soil mineralogy within the field is predominantly characterised by kaolinite and illite, the slightly higher CEC and clay ratio at the southern end suggests that smectite is present and is most likely in the form of an interstratified clay mineral (with either kaolinite or illite).
