2H NMR spectra of synthetic deuterated kaolinite have been collected in the temperature range from 150 K to 350 K. Hydroxyl groups show a Pake doublet pattern with an asymmetry factor of 0. They are almost fixed spatially, and undergo a wobbling motion with increasing temperature. The quadrupole coupling constant is 273 ± 3 kHz at 150 K, which indicates that interlayer hydrogen bonding is relatively weak
