Abstract: The interaction of telone with acid and base saturated montmorillonite furnished adsorption isotherms which possessed combined features of H (high affinity) and C (linear rising) class isotherms; a fall in pH, an increase in electrical conductivity and formation of chloride ions. The observations were indicative of a process of chemisorption, both at the planar and lateral sites of montmorillonites, followed by penetration and swelling of the substrate micropores with telone. A reaction mechanism for the process of chemisorption has been proposed.
