Study of the alkaline reaction of bentonites

Objective

Bentonite and cement will be used in radioactive waste disposal. The cement degradation produces alkaline solutions, which affect the smectite stability and, therefore, the bentonite properties. Several batch experiments, in which smectite/bentonite and alkaline solutions react are proposed.
