– Microscopy observations show that suspensions of synthetic and natural nanolayered smectite clay particles submitted to a strong external electric field undergo a fast and extended structuring. This structuring results from the interaction between induced electric dipoles, and is only possible for particles with suitable polarization properties. Smectite clay colloids are observed to be particularly suitable, in contrast to similar suspensions of a nonswelling clay. Synchrotron X-ray… CONTINUE READING
