Cd2ϩ ADSORPTION CONTROLS CdS GROWTH IN CLAYS The sample solutions were introduced to the nebulizer of the ICP-AES spectrometer by a high-precision Gilson MinipulseIII peristaltic pump at a flow rate of 1.5 cm3/min. The argonplasma spectrometer was operated at 1 kW plasma forwardpower and 12 L/min plasma gas and 1 L/min sheath gas flowrate settings. Three-point linear calibration was performed,covering the range of concentration of interest, 1–100 ppm.
The calibrating solutions were prepared by dilution of a cad-mium actetate stock solution (1 g/100 mL) with water. Ana-lytical line selection (226.502 nm Cd) and conventional two-point background correction were based on the inspection ofthe emission spectra of the samples.

X-ray diffraction measurements were taken on a Phillips PW 1820/1830 diffractometer, ␭(CuK␣) ϭ 0.1542 nm, 50 kV,and 40 mA, in the 1° Յ 2⌰ Յ 32° regime, using the PC-ADP3.5 software.

Cadmium ion solubilities increase, as expected, with in- creasing mol fractions of ethanol in the ethanol– cyclohexaneliquid mixture (see Fig. 1). Plotted in Fig. 2 are the determinedadsorption excess isotherms of cadmium ions adsorbed onHDP-M (n s ) against the concentrations of Cd2ϩ ion present (C ) in ethanol (1)– cyclohexane (2) mixtures at x ϭ 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, and 0.4. The amount of cadmium ion adsorbed isseen to depend strongly on the composition of the binaryliquid. Thus, at x ϭ 0.05, 95% of the cadmium ions are adsorbed on the HDP-M surface; the solubility of Cd2ϩ ion inthe x ϭ 0.05 ethanol (1)–cyclohexane (2) mixture is 0.5 mmol/dm3 (Fig. 1) and the concentration of Cd2ϩ adsorbed is95% (Fig. 2). The extremely rapid rise of the Cd2ϩ ionsadsorbed at x ϭ 0.05 unequivocally indicates the partitioning of essentially all of the cadmium ions onto the HDP-M surface(i.e., C Ϸ 0). Increasing the amount of ethanol in the ethanol cyclohexane mixture resulted in a progressive decrease of theslopes of the adsorption isotherms, and at x X-ray diffraction patterns of CdS/DBS-C composites of various surfaces of the HDP-M platelets were found to be essentially CdS concentrations: (1) 0 mol/g, (2) 4 ϫ 10Ϫ6 mol/g, (3) 4 ϫ 10Ϫ5 mol/g, (4) 4 ϫ 10Ϫ4 mol/g, (5) 4 ϫ 10Ϫ3 mol/g.
