Structural-chemical evolution within exfoliated clays.


The exfoliated (delaminated) structures of lamellar clays offer potential as precursors for the formation of various nanostructured materials. In this article, Lucentite and Laponite phyllosilicate clays, which both have empirical formulas of Na(0.33)[Mg(2.67)Li(0.33)Si4O10(OH)2] but differ in nanodimensions, have been exfoliated. Experiments were carried… (More)
