Sensitive clays can be damaged if subjected to Hot Solvent cleaning and drying in a conventional oven.
Such samples are required to be cleaned in Cool Cleaning Soxhlets and subjected to drying in a Humidity Oven.
Difference in porosity measurements after drying with humidity oven and then after drying with conventional oven will determine the porosity lost due to clay.
