Magnesium Phyllo (Organo) Silicate: A Clay to Play with in Materials Science
24 Apr 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): M. Eswaramoorthy
The synthesis and applications of amino functionalized clay will be discussed in this talk. The tailor made clay containing
amino pendants is easily dispersible in water. This property has been effectively utilized to make water soluble clay-metal
nanoparticles composites, clay-protein and clay-polymer composites. Further, the use of aminoclay as a permselective
matrix in stabilizing copper nanoparticles will be highlighted. The template application of aminoclay in making
mesostructured layered carbon will also be discussed.
