The reaction of layered silicates like magadiite with the cetyltrimethylammonium cation (CTA) was studied using different CTA/Na molar ratios. The layered materials have been synthesized by traditional methods and the intercalation of the lamellar material followed the conventional ion exchange procedure by controlled introduction of different amounts of surfactants as spacers in the lamellar structure. After the introduction of the surfactant molecules, two more steps are necessary to obtain… CONTINUE READING
