Abstract : Quasielastic neutron scattering experiments were performed with Na−hectorite, Ni−hectorite, and Sm−hectorite samples in order to find out whether Sm3+ is present in the clay interlayer as a fully hydrated cation outer-sphere complex, or, as it follows from neutron diffraction data analysis, it is dehydrated and bound to the clay surface inner-sphere complex. The results obtained for the Sm−hectorite were compared with other interlayer cations: strongly hydrated Ni2+ and relatively weakly hydrated Na+. It was found that water mobility in the Sm−hectorite sample is very close to the water mobility in Ni−hectorite. This is only possible if the Sm3+ ion is fully hydrated. It was shown that water molecules hydrating Ni2+ and Sm3+ exhibit diffusion mobility measurable with backscattering spectrometers. The diffusion coefficients of the exchangeable cations were found using the slow exchange approximations DNi = 0.05 − 0.14 × 10−9 m2-s and DSm = 0.04 − 0.18 × 10−9 m2-s.
