Interlayer cations and moisture content greatly influence the molecular vibrations of H2O in montmorillonite as shown through reflectance spectroscopy in the infrared. The absorptions due to H2O have been studied in montmorillonites exchanged with H, Na, Ca, Mg and Fe3+ interlayer cations under variable moisture environments. Band assignments have been made for absorptions in the 3 muem region due to structural OH vibrations, symmetric and asymmetric H2O stretching vibrations and the H2O bending overtone.Changes in the energies of absorption due to H2O stretching vibrations were observedas the samples were dehydrated by reducing the atmospheric pressure. Absorptions near 3620 cm-1 and 3350 cm-1 have been assigned to water bound directly to cations (inner sphere) and surface-bonded H2O and absorptions near 3450 cm-1 and 350 cm-1 have been assigned to additional adsorbed water molecules. Band assignments have been made for combination bands in the near-infrared as well. Absorptions near 1.41 muem and 1.91 muem are assigned to bound H2O combination bands, while the shoulders near 1.46 muem and 1.97 muem are assigned to combinations of additional H2O molecules adsorbed in the interlayer regions and along grain surfaces.
