There were taken and analyzed electron-microscopic images of quartz particles after mechanochemical processing in mill-activator with different organic modifiers. It was stated that quartz surface suffers serious changes the peculiarities of which are defined by used modifiers. Quartz particle has a complex flaky morphology. Friable surface layers represent as carbonic element-organic formations with ferrous additives. The change of particle's surface layers are responsible to modified quartz physicochemical properties transfer.
