Abstract : The X-ray diffraction method is used to study the collodial and silty fractions of soils. With the aid of this method several problems are solved, but one of the important ones consists of the determination of the minerals which are present in the highly dispersed part of the soils. The coarse-grained minerals (>0.001 mm) are usually determined by the microscopic immersion method.
