OZCAN-TASKIN, N.G. ... et al, 2018. Characterisation of the delamination process of nanoclays. Presented at the 16th European Conference on Mixing (Mixing 16), Toulouse, France, 9-12 September 2018.
Nanocomposites comprising delaminated nanoclays result in superior properties of the final product. This study aimed at monitoring the processes of intercalation and exfoliation of different nanoclay-polyol pairs performed through different dispersion protocols. X-ray diffraction, rheology and particle sizing are discussed in relation to the evolving product properties.
