Summary: Amine-bentonite complexes have been prepared and a study made of alteration of the affinities of the bentonite in connexion with various liquid systems. Several techniques have been employed in observing the change in the clay from its naturally occurring condition to one in which it is compatible with organic liquids. A mechanism is proposed to account for the pronounced modification of characteristics.
