1) A clay mineral having a 2:1 expanding crystal lattice. Isomorphous substitution gives the various types and causes a net permanent charge balanced by cations in such a manner that water may move between the sheets, giving reversible cation exchange and very plastic properties. 2) Smectite refers to a family of non-metallic clays primarily composed of hydrated sodium calcium aluminum silicate. Common names for smectite include montmorillonite or sodium montmorillonite ("sodium bentonite" or "Wyoming bentonite") and swelling bentonite ("Western bentonite").
