Diatomite is abundant in many areas of the world and has unique physical characteristics, such as high permeability (0.1-10 mD) and porosity (35-65%) (Murer and Mobil, 2000), small particle size, low thermal conductivity and density (Hassan et al ., 1999)
The review tackles common diatomite, its characterization, modifications and its composites, heavy metal toxicity and its immobilization techniques using diatomite, other important applications of diatomite.
Diatomite (SiO 2 _nH 2 O) or diatomaceous earth is a pale-colored, soft, lightweight sedimentary rock composed principally of silica microfossils of aquatic unicellular algae. Diatomite consists of a wide variety of shape and sized diatoms, typically 10-200 mm, in a structure containing up to 80-90% voids (Lemonas, 1997).

Diatomite has been used as pozzolanic additive for Portland cement, mortars and grouts. Diatomite is characterized as a natural pozzolan satisfying the standard TS EN 197-1 in terms of the active silica content (Xu et al., 2014). Opal-A (amorphous silica) can react with Ca(OH)2 to produce hydrated calcium silicate. Diatomite is relatively abundant and
Mar 20, 2021 Due to its unique advantages and desirable properties, high porosity and small particle size, that give to the diatomite low density, high permeability, high adsorption capacity and specific surface area, and low thermal conductivity , the diatomite provides a wide variety of uses in sustainable development and environment such as purification of drinking water, filtration,
The raw material from the deposit is characterized by a 72% concentration of SiO 2, relatively high density (1.42 g/cm 3 ), and relatively low porosity (average 28.5%, maximally 50%). Typical diatomite with silica content above 80% is not found in Poland 4 .
Aug 05, 2020 Natural diatomite was investigated to immobilize toxic elements of zinc, lead, copper and cadmium in a contaminated calcareous soil. The diatomite was characterized using X-ray fluorescence spectrometry and scanning electron microscopy. Contaminated soil was incubated with 0, 2 and 5 weight -% of diatomite at 25 C for 8 weeks.

Thermal processing or calcination with or without flux is a common process in diatomaceous earth production. The thermal treatment of diatomite is a sintering or agglomeration process achieved through partial melting. Calcination not only dehydrates the amorphous silica but initiates conversion of Opal A to cristobalite (40-60%).

Diatomite is often used as an additive in the manufacture of portland cement. High-quality diatomite contains over 80% silica, and it is added to the cement-making process to boost the silica content of the product. Diatomite straight from the mine is crushed and blended with the limestone, shale, or other materials being used to make the cement.

The hybridization of clay minerals with conducting polymers receives great interest for different potential applications, including environmental remediation. This work studies and compares the electrochemical properties of two different clays, montmorillonite (Mont) and diatomite (Diat), and their respective clay/PEDOT-PSS hybrid materials in H2SO4 medium. The hybrid materials
Figures 2(a) and 2(b) show the SEM micrographs of morphology of diatomite and nAgDT particles, respectively. The surface of the diatomite was smooth but had some submicron-sized pores with uniform size distribution (Figures 2(a) and 2(c)).As shown in Figure 2(b), the silver nanoparticles can be clearly observed on the surface of the nAgDT and show spherical shape.
