The chain silicates occur in more specialized situations, but do occur in some desert soils. A classification of the principal clay minerals is given in Table 6. Identification of the clay minerals in soils of the earth's outer crust has been made possible by x-ray diffraction techniques. Prior to World War II, although the principals of x-ray diffraction were well known and had been investigated many years earlier, x-ray diffraction units had not been perfected or produced commercially and were not available to research institutions or to universities.
