Abstract This paper aims to prepare purified Na-bentonite with improved properties for its use in the harmaceutical industry. Calcium bentonite from the Sohag region of Egypt was activated with various proportions of Sodium carbonate (2, 3, 5 and 8 wt.%). Additionally, bentonite was purified by sedimentation to eliminate impurities, especially quartz. The results of X-ray diffraction (XRD) and swelling volume ... Read more

Elattaar, A. A. (2018): A new Hypselaster species (Echinoidea, Spatangoida) from the Middle Eocene Midawara Formation, Eastern Desert, Egypt. Swiss Journal of Paleontology, Swiss Journal of Palaeontology.
Abstract The schizasterid echinoid genus Hypselaster Clark, 1917, is recorded for the first time from the Midawara Formation (Middle Eocene, Lutetian), which crops out east Maghagha area, east Nile Valley, Eastern Desert, Egypt. Except for Hypselaster sp. from the Upper Miocene (Messinian) of Morocco, no Hypselaster has been recorded in pan Africa. The material described in the present paper is ... Read more

Abstract Twenty-two echinoid species (5 regular and 17 irregular) belonging to 14 genera, 10 families, 5 orders, and 3 subclasses are identified from the Middle Eocene succession cropping out in El Sheikh Fadl-Ras Gharib stretch, Eastern Desert. The echinoid fauna studied herein came from four sections: Gebel ElMehasham, South Gebel ElMehasham, Gebel ElMereir, and Gebel Qarara sections. The studied succession ... Read more

One hundred and seventy seven living and dead complete tests of Jacksonaster depressum (L. Agassiz) were collected from different depths ranging between 10 and 52 meters depth from the Northern Bay of Safaga, Red Sea coast. Morphometric measurements were conducted on some specific characters of the skeletons in addition to use the scanning electron microscope in the study on spines, ... Read more
