Abstract: Exchange isotherms for the pairs Na-K and Na-Ca were measured by use of 0.1 N solutions at 5°, 35°, and 70°C in phillipsite from Tecopa, California (3.63 Al/32 oxygen unit cell), and Oki Islands, Shimane Prefecture, Japan (6.31 Al/32 oxygen unit cell). All isotherms except those for Na-Ca at 5°C were reversible. Free energy was evaluated for all reversible exchanges. The thermodynamic affinity sequences were K > Na > Ca in both phillipsites. The selectivity for K in competition with Na and that for Na competing with Ca became larger at the lower temperatures. The siliceous phillipsite preferred the larger cation more strongly for the Na-K system, and Na more strongly for the Na-Ca system than the aluminous phillipsite.
