Radiocesium interception potential (RIP), a quantitative index of a frayed edge site of micaceous minerals, was investigated on test clay minerals (illite, kaolinite, montmorillonite and vermiculite) and soil clays formed under different pedogenetic conditions in the Kinki district of Japan and in northern Thailand to elucidate the effect of pedogenetic weathering on the amount of frayed edge site of micaceous minerals.
