|Abstract: ||Clays are naturally occurring materials composed primarily of fine-grained
minerals. Clay has been defined as an earthy material that forms a coherent, sticky mass
when mixed with water and when wet this mass can be readily moldable. The two main
features that evoke the interest on clays are their common availability and their extra
ordinary properties . Clays find their potential application in ceramics, building
materials, adsorbents, ion–exchangers, sensors, decolorizing agents and catalysis .
The adsorptive power and high water retention capacity of clays are responsible for
their wide applications. The first and most widely known application of clay on
catalysis is French Houdry cracking process developed in 1930 . Clays, forms a
subset of large discipline of catalysts in particular as heterogeneous catalysts. This
shows the importance of working on clays and clay based compounds.
Clays are classified into two categories:|
