  Chlorite - LoveToKnow 1911
The chlorites usually occur as salt (H= 2-3) scaly aggregates of a dark-green colour.
Chemically, the chlorites are distinguished from the micas by the presence of a considerable amount of water (about 13%) and by not containing alkalis; from the soft, scaly, mineral talc they differ in containing aluminium (about 20%) as an essential constituent.
Closely allied to the chlorites is another group of micaceous minerals known as the vermiculites, which have resulted by the alteration of the micas, particularly biotite and phlogopite.

Typically, discrete elongate euhedral fibers of muscovite and chlorite are intergrown parallel to [100] or [010].
Chlorite, however, is now absent, having been converted to what appears to be an amorphous or highly disordered residue.
The general intergrowth pattern is chlorite and muscovite fibers packed parallel to fiber length, with lengths continuous or discontinuous with respect to the bounding shear surfaces.

 Chlorite
Inasmuch as water is a major cause of partial melting, the thermodynamic stability of chlorite is of significance to models of subduction, dewatering, and magma genesis.
Chlorites are also significant components of metamorphic terranes that are impacted by acidified atmospheric deposition in the eastern U.S. and Canada, and thus their weathering characteristics (May et al, in preparation) influence water chemistry and watershed response to acidic inputs.
The thermodynamic stability of chlorite is known to be affected by various degrees of ordering of the octahedral and tetrahedral cations, so that rates of weathering for chlorites are affected by cation occupancies of the various structural sites.

 Disinfection method and composition therefor - Patent 4986990
The concentrations of chlorite and acid are relatively low and are such that the amount of the chlorite in the form of chlorous acid is no more than about 15 percent by weight of the total chlorite ion concentration in solution.
The percent by weight of chlorite and chlorous acid may be calculated from the ionization constant of chlorous acid and the amount of hydrogen ion in solution produced by the partial ionization of the protic acid.
At chlorite ion levels higher than about 0.5%, the concentration of chlorous acid formed upon admixture of a protic acid may be in excess of that required for the formation of a metastable chlorous acid solution.

 Chlorite and chlorite/smectite.
Unlike the well-studied interstratifications of illite and smectite, whose components both exhibit 10Å basal spacings in HRTEM lattice fringe images, the differentiation of chlorite (14Å) and smectite is relatively unambiguous.
If the end-member components of the smectite and chlorite compositions are known, interstratifications of these two will plot on a mixing line and probe analyses of these mixtures can be interpolated and expressed as percents of the end-member components (Schiffman and Fridleifsson, 1991).
