Summary:The hydrothermal stabilities of a low-Fe clinochlore and a high-Mg chamosite, in the presence of kaolinite, were investigated recently at T T≤200°C and Pv = PH2O (Aja and Small, 1999; Aja and Dyar, 2002). Standard state thermodynamic properties (S0298, ΔfH01,298 and ΔfG01,298) have been obtained for the two chlorites whose structural formulae are (Al2.33 Fe2+1.00 Fe3+0.14 Ca0.02 Mn0.01 Ni0.02 Cr0.01 Mg8.40[]0.07) (Si5.66 Al2.34)O20 (OH)16 and (Fe3+0.60 Fe2+5.43 Mg2.30 Al2.98 Mn0.05 Ca0.03 Zn0.01[]0.60) (Si5.63 Al2.37)O20 (OH)16. For the low-Fe clinochlore, the respective thermochemical properties are 430 J mol-1 K-1, -8770.64±35.24 kJ mol-1, and -8120.54±32.63 kJ mol-1. ΔfH01,298, ΔfG01,298, and S0298, similarly obtained for the Windsor chamosite are -7851.29±23.14 kJ mol-1, -7271.01±21.43 kJ mol-1 and 668±5 J mol-1 K-1, respectively. Ideal site-mixing models of chlorite composition, along the chamosite-clinochlore binary, fail to model satisfactorily these chlorite-fluid equilibria only at lower temperatures (T<175°C). The magnitudes of the excess thermodynamic properties calculated for these chlorites, within the ternary clinochlore-daphnite-sudoite system, suggest significant deviations from ideality.
