A triblock copolymer based on poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) and 2-(N,N-diethylamino)ethyl methacrylate (DEAEMA)/2-(methyl-7-nitrobenzofurazan)amino ethyl acrylate (NBD-NAcri), was synthesized via atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP). The corresponding chlorohydrated copolymer, named as PCL-b-DEAEMA, was prepared and anchored via cationic exchange on montmorillonite (MMT) surface....

The coagulation of sodium montmorillonite by inorganic salts (NaNO3, Ca(NO3)2 and La(NO3)3) was studied by combining classical turbidity measurements with wide-angle-X-ray scattering (WAXS), small-angle-X-ray scattering (SAXS), and transmission X-ray microscopy (TXM). Using size-selected samples, such a combination, associated with an...

To mitigate the aggregation and enhance the reactivity of nanosized zero-valent iron (nZVI), montmorillonite is employed as a template-supporting matrix to prepare nZVI through two different pathways: heterogeneous nucleation and homogeneous nucleation processes. Dispersed sub-nanosized ZVI clusters with an average...

Contamination of water by toxic heavy metals due to urbanization is a world-wide environmental problem, which changes chemical and biological properties of both surface and ground water. The heavy metals render the water unsuitable for drinking and are also highly...
Nanoclays are clay minerals optimized for use in clay nanocomposites– multi-functional material systems with several property enhancements targeted for a particular application.
