The elucidation of the structure of the intermediate, methanol-treated kaolinite, is significant for the understanding of the interlayer surface reactions of kaolinite. In this study, methanol-treated kaolinite prepared at room temperature is characterized. Evidence is given concerning the methoxy modification of the AlO2(OH)4 layers of kaolinite.
